Also keep in mind the 58 renders much better on the D700/D3/s, D4/s/Df. If you shoot it on the D800 results can seem a bit fuzzy until after downsampling.

Which is just another indication that the lens is not sharp.

Frankly, in these particular images I don't see any reason to prefer the 58 over the Zeiss or Sigma, which unsurprisingly look very similar to each other.

David, your gear list shows you own some incredibly fine glass... surely you can see more in an image than just "sharpness"?

Perhaps you could help me understand your opinion better by precisely explaining what you mean when you say "the lens is not sharp"?

Thank you

Andrew
