This is what a D800E image with a AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens should look like. Sharpening in Lightroom 5 was 50, 0.5, 50, 21. A D800 image would require more sharpening.

Robin, what was your focus point in this image?   How did you determine where to set it?  Due to the sharpness of the near grass, it appears that it was near rather than far.  I'd rather not set my aperture up in the double digits but with shots like this I'm hesitant to set too low.

regards, David
