Re: Nikon 50 1.4 @ f9 ???

Most photographers familiar with this lens understand that it is

Thanks Keith. I now see that both SLRGear and Photozone show that rather small drop from f/5.6 to f/8, albeit on a D200 body. Now it makes sense to me that f/5.6 would have been best, though the DOF would have been even more of an issue in terms of interpretation. Still, I'd be surprised if the 50/1.4 at f/9 were not outresolving the D3 sensor.
