Thanks for the comments.
John, great demo about your "problem 16/3.5"; hope Nikon can fix it.
Andy, very contrasting deep blue sky vs. beach, exquisite colours!
Continuing the Micro 55's battle, a comparison at infinity focus:

Comparison of Nikkors 50/1.8 vs Micro55/2.8 vs Micro55/3.5 at infinity por labecoaves, no Flickr
Comparison of Micro-Nikkors 55mm f/2.8 ais and 55mm f/3.5 ai, with the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 ai just for reference.
Cropped extreme left, centre and extreme right areas.
All shots taken with a D600 + tripod + remote shutter + live view focusing in the centre.
I suggest a visualization at the original (largest) size to evaluate results.
Caution: N = 1 for each lens; copy variation can be a factor here.
It appears that at f/2.8-3.5 and f/4 the 55f/2.8 is sligtly better at the right border, while at f/8 all lenses are roughly the same. I would say that as for landscapes we use f/5.6 -f/11, all lenses are similar and good.
