I noticed that one of Nikon's sharpest lenses, the 28-300mm VR, is not listed in the Technical Guide. I am really surprised at this for two reasons:

1. This lens continuously surprises me with its sharpness when used with the the D700, and I have no reason to believe that this performance would be any different on the D800/D800E, and

2. This lens is pictured mounted on the D800/D800E in all of Nikon's advertising. Why show it mounted on the D800/D800E if it is not suitable?

I can't imagine why this lens didn't make the list in the Technical Guide. It is less expensive than most of the others, but surely that could not be the reason. Could it be that its f3.5-f5.6 aperture isn't sufficient to allow for fast enough shutter speeds to render D800/D800E images sharp enough? Any thoughts on this?
