180 F2.8 out resolves this
In reply to John M Roberts, Feb 7, 2013

I was expecting much better resolution figures...at least compared to a 25 years old lens...take a look at this: 
180 F2.8: 
3545/2958/2892 @ F2.8 
3649/3079/2943 @ F4
3734/31342982 @ F5.6
70-200: (@200mm)
3616/3046/2977 @ F4
3690/3116/3018 @ F5.6
180 resolves more in the center and corners as well. Its just the extreme corners where the zoom has a marginal lead. Zoom doesn't have f2.8 so that's a mute point..
