That was on the d3x not an more demanding d800. And those scores were stopped down to f5.6

The sigma is sharper at f1.8 till f4.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply the cheapo 50mm f1.8G is every bit as good as the Sig 35.  The Sig 35 deserves it's almost cult like following, it's a great lens.

I'm familiar with Riley's tests with the D800E.  If we're talking purely whether or not a 50 f1.8 can resolve all the pixels of the 36MP sensor, it can.  Obviously there is more to a lens than just resolving pixels.
