The lens struggled to be particularly sharp on a 10MP sensor.  It needs to be stopped down to f/8.  It would do even worse on a 16MP sensor.  The A lens is extremely sharp wide-open.  Pretty cut-and-dry situation.  The voigtlander simply isn't in the same class as the A's lens.

The poor performance you reference occurred outside the DX crop area on Full Frame images,  The same report you quoted actually stated that on an APS-C sensor, it was good across the frame at f5.6, which is only stopped down 1-1/3 stops - rather typical actually.

And from what I've heard, the Nikon A's lens is nothing special in the corners at f2.8 or f4 either.

See here for reference:

"Coolpix A edge resolution very low at F2.8 and F4?

So maybe you'd like to try again, since your last "proof" seems to have been a whiff.
