On the DX mode D80 my 16-85mm 3/5/4.5 VR and 70-300mm 3.5/4.5 VR had "sweet spots" around f8, so I used aperture mode a LOT.

Does anyone know if the 70-300mm retains this "sweet spot" around f8 in FX mode?

Am I likely to be able to use wider apertures to pleasing results with the D600?

ALSO: If I use the 16-85mm in DX mode, will it perform "better" at wider apertures than f8 on the D600 than it did on the D80?
