Congratulations on the new D800E, Hal. I'm in the hunt right now for the same camera. Coming from a D300, this also means new glass. I see your bear photo was shot with the 24-120 f4 VR. I was thinking that would be the logical choice as the everyday go-to lens for the D800. It is the FX mathematical equivalent of the 16-85 DX that I use for that purpose with the D300, and I'm very comfortable with that focal length range. I'm also thinking that a good ultra-wide compliment to the 24-120 would be the 16-35 f4 VR. I don't know if you have any experience with the 16-35, but I'd be interested in your thoughts on the 24-120. What store in the valley do you typically give your business to?
