"RE: Should I Keep DX Lens For D800?"

The 24-120/F4 VR might be another option to consider, F4 will give you about the same DOF as the F2.8 you have on DX - you'll get a very attractive FL, a great travel lens, it's very sharp between 24-70 and a has good sharpness in the bonus range from 70-120mm - @ half the price of the 24-70, oh, yes you'll also save some weight, and hey VR2 if you like.

Yes, the 24-70 IQ, IS better, no doubt, but not by much. So it depends, if you NEED, WANT (NAS) and have the bucks for the king, then go ahead
Otherwise IF you instead go with the 24-120 VR, then you'll probably will have a financed 16-35/F4 VR....

Sell the DX, once on FX you'll probably never look back.
