I will try to do that tomorrow and get them posted. I'm not too worried about vignetting. I like lenses with character. I bought my VR1 a few months before they released the new version but never gave it a second thought. I still shoot my 80-200 2.8 AFS as well. Love that lens.

The D800 has vignetting control/compensation as a menu item as well.

The only "oh ####" moment I've had so far (actually a few hours ago) is realizing that my 85mm 1.4 D looks like total mush on this camera. I simply can not get sharp images from it and the contrast/color rendition is a far cry from what I get off my D300. I really don't want to replace that with the G version. I was hoping to pick up the 35mm 1.4. Can't get them both right now. *sigh* Does it ever end??
