This is a re-posting from a different thread -

I had a Nikkor 18/4 for about a year until this summer when I changed it for a Zeiss 18m f3.5, at great expense. You have to look very hard indeed at some very careful tests before you can decide that the Zeiss is better than the 30-year-old Nikkor. In fact, in real-world shooting, I don't think it is any better.

I found the Nikon 18/4 to be pretty sharp right into the corners at f4 and very sharp at 5.6 and 8. And absolutely no chromatic aberration.
