this is some great work man! darn, if i can get this lens for hella cheap...sigh.I honestly love how little distortion this lens has for being what I call a wide angle (remember that I shoot at 200mm normally). This shot is uncorrected for distortion, and has just a tiny crop, so the subject definitely wasn't in the center. I find to get the best results though, I have to manual focus the lens. That could be an issue with the D800 though.

did you switch from the d700 to the d800 for the res? i love my d700, havent used a d800 but i did own a d610 for a short while, but keep going back to my d700I have considered selling my 35, I simply don't use it enough, the focus is just so inaccurate at times. No issues with my 85, or 200 though. Somehow I still feel like it's my D800's fault, really don't like the camera, loved my D700 way more.
Very coolI love my 35g on the D800, one of my favourite lenses, ultra sharp at all apertures and the colours and contrast are excellent. At f16 the new 1.4g Nikkors produce the best 18 point stars on light sources I've seen.
I took the same shot on my 24-120 and the stars were nowhere near as good.
Here is a 30second exposure at f16.
