Sooo excited! Of course trying to read here, but a couple questions first.

I have D300/D700 currently. Myriad of lenses from 50 1.2, 50 1.4D, 24-70 2.8G, 80-200 2.8D. All nikon for those.

Have a couple DX and non Nikon: 11-16 2.8 Tokina (v1), 28-80 2.8 Tokina (built like a tank - now replaced 24-70 nikon).

What would be a good lens for ultra wide (not fish eye). I've been shooting the 24-70 on my (new to me) D700 and at 24 it's still not quite there... Where on my D300 the 11-16 is AWESOME.

Prime or zoom suggestions?

When funds allow (ie recover from d800e) - currently considering:

revered 14-24 2.8
16-35 f4 VR

Both are stretching the budget - and it seems when i shoot wide, i almost always shoot all the way WIDE (11mm on my 11-16).

Any comments or suggestions on those two is appreciated.

also curious if any prime lenses you recommend?

maybe option 3 (or 4) - any budget options that are worthy of the D800?

Thank you all!! Monday can't arrive quickly enough (via Fedex) - will keep digging/reading here and part way through Thom's ebook now!
