If you are finding it difficult to exploit the resolution of the D800 with an existing Nikkor 50mm lens then you are doing something wrong as all will comfortably outresolve it. You may need to look at your technique before considering blowing that sort of cash on the Zeiss 55mm as it would likely be wasted.

Please define the technical term "out resolve" in a scientific manner, rather then just bandying it about like everyone else in the thread seems to. What do you mean when you say that a lens out resolves a sensor? What is the test method?

Oh honestly! Do the words "Nyquist limit" and "aliasing" mean nothing to you? Maybe, if you are having to ask me to clarify some (not very) "technical terms". Look them up, have a think and figure out how it is that a lens can induce the latter if it cannot resolve beyond the former.

Some people!
