It is a good lens but you will not the best from your D800 with a DX lens. The camera will automatically crop to DX format, your viewfinder image will probably appear smaller than in your DX camera and the images will only contain about 15.5 Mp out of the possible 36Mp.

If not keeping the D300 then rather sell the lens and get the (almost) equivalent 24-70 f/2.8. It will be somewhat larger and heavier than the 17-55mm but should address the same needs.
