Dockil,

Now we can see how sharp your lens go from f1.8 to f2.8. You don't get maximum performance at f1.8. You should even get better results at f5.6.

Your lens seems to be extremely good. What surprises me is that you don't get chromatic aberrations at f1.8. No matter how good my focus is, I still get some. The pixel width of the D5100 and the D800 are quite close. So we should get same results at 100%.

But there is something that still puzzles me. The width of your image is 1600px. Most likely, you gave an image wider than that and dpreview is scaling it down to 1600px. You should crop with a width of 1500px so that it does not happen. Because right now, we don't get your 100% crop.
