Aperature for peak sharpness on Nikon d800

I've  been shooting my new used Nikon d800 for a few weeks and figuring out the best settings and technique. I'm using it almost exclusively for landscapes.

I have been looking at the files and it almost seems that I am getting the best cross frame sharpness somewhere in the f 6.3 to 7.1 range with my 24-85 and 20mm 2.8 D. I tend to focus on the nearest object of interest.

I'm coming for 16 MP m43 sensors, which obviously have a smaller pixel pitch.

Thougts?
