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.

The glass mystique dies hard :^)

£169 for the image and £3000 to feel confident that one has the very best lens ever ever ever (Otus is £3169 over here)

...and then shoot hand held with a manual focus lens...

I am pretty sure it is a nice lens and it most probably outresolves the Nikon 50/1.4G but I suspect that's only valid in studio tests.

Indeed, there is quite a bit that might go wrong.
