Does the D800 magnify or make apparent lens flaws?

Shot some flowers last night under overcast skies using my 70-200mm f2.8 VR 1 lens and was disappointed with the results, most noticeably color fringing around the edges of the flowers and overall focus softness. Used a tripod or shot at high-enough shutter speeds and engaged VR when hand held. Was never unhappy with this lens on my D300.

I've read that the VR II version of this lens is better on a full-frame sensor but only in terms of vignetting.

Anyone else had similar experiences or have any advice? Thanks.
