Few days ago I acquired SK 28 LS lens, and only today had a chance to test it. I have two other SK lens: 80 and 110 and they're spectacular. So I've expected nothing but to be amazed by 28 LS (though I've read mixed reviews about it) and that it will tear apart my Nikon D800e with 14-24.
Maybe I'm blind but I think its not tearing Nikon apart at all. 14-24 is stellar lens but SK 28 is 6k lens and honestly I've thought that it will be better.
Below is 100% crops of left upper corner, middle and bottom and right upper corner e.t.c. Both frames were shot at f/11, Nikon was at 18mm. Apparently (as I just learned from P1 website), 35mm equivalent of 28 LS is 17mm but I've used Capture Integration focal length calculator.

If someone interested in raw:
What do you think? Do my copy suck or I'm paranoid?
I have an Mamiya 45 AF which is as sharp as SK 28 if not sharper. SK has better contrast though.
I will be grateful for your input.
