D800 24-85 V 24-120 test with images OMG!

Yes OMG I have had the camera and 2 lenses for a few days and I thought it would be interesting to see which lens performs best on the D800.

I recommend you stick to the experts as this took me ages and nearly sent me mad.

"I think" the summary is that the 24-120 is sharper in the centre and the 24-85 is sharper in corners. BUT which is most important, I guess centre always wins?

Here are the sales and crops

All shots on tripod RAW converted and f5.6 3 sec delay

Thoughts and views appreciated
