In reply to:

marike6: What did we learn? That the 24-70 Nikkor is still the best standard zoom money can buy, the D800E the highest resolving camera DSLR in existence, and that the Tamron 24-70 VC, especially on the D800, is a great value.

@anotherMike -

"the slighest miss on your focus results in a pretty drastic MTF drop. Point being, how many photographers actually nail, 100%, focus, on a top tier tripod, in light with no atmospheric issues, where on a large print you could tell the difference between the 1st and 2nd best lens mounted on equal resolution cameras? IMO subjective quality differences will be seen more than a slight MTF 'win' in my experience."

Except that if I miss that 100% accurate focus on a low MTF lens, now I've just relegated myself to potentially unusable images, whereas a higher MTF lens might make that image passable.

Strive for 100, but accept less. Strive for 90, get disappointed.
