I have a very old nikkor 85 1.8D and it is THE sharpest lens I own.  I even have an OLD 70-210 variable aperture (I think from around 1989) and it is amazingly sharp.  The 50 1.8G is also very sharp although newer. I love my old primes.  Who knew there was so much sharpness in them. The D800 shows just how good they are.

I agree, I have a few older wonderful lenses. One is a Nikkor-S 50MM 1.4  Really sharp, even wide open  and great rendition. I shoot with a D300.
