Yup, I guess that's why I sold my 105/2 AFD DC after finding, on a D800E, that my zoom, the 70-200/2.8G VR-II, was sharper at all distances. Shrug....  (or the 14-24 zoom being clearly better than the Nikon, er, Tamron, er, Nikon 14/2.8 prime...)

It depends on the lens. Modern primes generally beat modern zooms, but at times modern zooms beat vintage primes designed in an earlier era...

70-200mm VRII is the only Zoom I have at the moment. Its a great lens.
