Sorry, but you must be kidding.

The 50 1.8 G is fairly limited stopped down even in the centre not to talk about the borders/corners where it visibly suffers from field curvature.

This became very obvious to me once I used the D800 50 1.8 G and D800E 85 1.8 G side by side in studio. Since I currently also have a D800E, my further tries with the 50 1.8 G on the D800E confirmed that it never allows to achieve the crisp appearence that the 85 1.8 G can deliver.

My 50mm 1.8g is pretty sharp on my D800.

Maybe not as good as my 85 1.8g never done a test as such.

heres the full image.

It is ok in the centre given its price point. With headshots you often do not want more resolution and normally less resolution at the bordes/corners is a nonissue. With full body shots resolution accross the frame is gaining importance and with city/landscapes it is even more important.

Nice picture by the way.
