If we take the Nikons best lens (85/F1.4),

Here is where your understanding gets tripped up. Does this lens resolve more than the D800 is capable of revealing?

What understanding!? I understand none of it - that is why I ask the question.

So your theory is lens constraint. Basically that resolution diminishes sharply after about 20mp (at least on the lens). Makes sense but a bit disconcerting given that the 85/1.4 is the highest resolving Nikon lens tested by DXO.
