The first of these was shot at 1/20th sec & ISO 100. The second at 1/400th sec & ISO 1250.  Why such dramatic changes? Is 1/20th fast enough to freeze cat motion? Is ISO 1250 free enough from noise (or noise reduction artefacts) to be able to see lens detail resolution?

Even if I could see the pixel level detail you're talking about, which is not present in these downsized images, I couldn't draw any conclusions about lens IQ from any of the images you've posted.

Because I realized it was a bit slow after I posted it, so bumped up the ISO  so I could use a faster speed. Its a D800, there isnt much noise up to ISO 1250.

Look at the photo at 100% on DP reviews resize screen.

BTW the amount of CAT motion is zero, he was asleep.
