"RE: Which lens?"

Shooting the D800 in DX crop mode gives a slightly better IQ than the D7000 withthe same lens.

From curiosity I decided to find some of the lenses mentioned making it failry easy to compare size, weight, and price. Basically if one of the first three options do not work, then the expense quickly climbs to $3,000+ along with at least doubling of the weight from the 80-400mm.
