That's because the a7r is 36mp...

Guess how many MP the d800 has.

The 55mm just exceeded everyone's expectations. And i am sorry for my previous judgement of the insane looking price for an f1.8. I still hear myself saying you can buy 2 1.4g for that. However you need 2 d800 side by side to get the same level of detail.

That fact more then justifies the price. Which was unknown till today.

actually, it was known... everyone of us that bought the lens and went shooting with it already knew this.

but even when they published their pictures here, no one believed them until dxo published their tests...

To be fair, a lot of pictures posted here are down-sampled from the native resolution. You can't really discriminate between a good lens and a great lens that way.

Also, many lenses are quite sharp once stopped down a bit. And most photos don't depend on the lens being sharp across the frame.

So objective lens tests help a lot for those of us that can't try or buy many lenses at these prices.
