The D800 scores a sharpness value of 20 and the D800E scores 27 point! I dont think that the difference is that big.

I agree, from what Ive seen, the difference is negligible even at 100% crop,
there is no way the difference is this high.

Keep in mind that you are comparing sharpness with your lens on the camera. Its likely that the sensor sharpness exceeds the sharpness of most lenses, so it would be impossible to see any difference using all but the best lenses.

Hi all,

Thank you for posting your comments on this forum.
The difference of sharpness is pretty high in the center. In the corners, this lens is slightly softer. Differences should be more noticeable in the center.
One other important criteria is that we measured it only in RAW: the difference on the final image can vary significantly depending on the RAW converter you used.

Hope this helps.
