How about an image of a test chart designed to measure the resolution of an 50mm F/1.8 lens on a D800?

How about you do some work around here for a change? Show us what you've got.

Sure, send me the lenses you'd like to have tested, and I'll be happy to perform Imatest MTF testing on all of them, along with my own.  I have a 50mm f/1.4G, a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art, and a 105 AF-S that are worthy of testing on my D800.  If you want, I'll rent a D7100, which has a higher available resolution in lines/mm.

By the way, your example of the IQ180 is actually a bad example.  It requires lower lens resolution to achieve better overall resolution.  It has a pixel pitch that is larger than the D800.
