It is ok in the centre given its price point. With headshots you often do not want more resolution and normally less resolution at the bordes/corners is a nonissue. With full body shots resolution accross the frame is gaining importance and with city/landscapes it is even more important.

Nice picture by the way.

"OK in the centre given its price point"?

It out resolves the D800. Click on the crop, full size, download it to your computer, zoom in and you will see individual pixels along the glasses of the young girl. The lens itself is capable of resolving much, much more than the 36MP, at least in the center.

Perhaps you could show some shots where you are not getting the resolution your shooting style demands.

It is ok in the centre but there are lenses that resolve better. You need fine detail to notice the difference. EG hair in focus.

However my main concern ist sharpness across the frame.

I am not complaining about this lens at its price.
