Ned,The 24-120mm f/4 is on the list of recommended lenses from Nikon for the D800 and is considered a "pro lens". Maybe you were thinking of the 24-85mm or the 24-300 f/3.5?Personally I think most of this is a bunch of hooey. The D7000 already resolves more lp/mm than the D800 and it uses "cheap" DX lenses.
