Your observation about sharpness is no surprise.  Almost to a tee, slower lenses beat faster ones at all f-stops.

That may often be true where the lens manufacturer pays the same attention to design, materials and build quality in both lenses.  However with modern Nikon lenses, Nikon go a lot further in all aspects with the faster versions of the same focal length lens - and the price reflects this.
