Having top quality lenses is a good decision on the D800. It can show lens flaws.

The 24-70 is my most used lens. Image quality is very good. There are small differences in quality across focal lengths, but it's generally at the top in any comparison of zooms. The only drawback is a lack of VR.

The 14-24 is a fantastic lens in terms of image quality. It is unmatched and a number of top Canon shooters use this lens. But it does not have filter threads, is a bit heavy, and lacks VR. The 16-35 is a good alternative in that you do give up some in quality, but it is still very good and has filter threads, VR, lighter weight and lower cost. For me, VR was important for shooting from water. And filter threads are important in my photography of streams and waterfalls. So I chose the 16-35 over the 14-24.
