A few weeks ago I posted a link to my mini-review of the D800. Since then nothing has been found to dull my enthusiasm for this exceptional camera.
If you really want to enjoy the befefits you should invest in at least one premium lens able to exploit the possibilities presented by this remarkable sensor.
The new FX zooms such as the 28-300 or the 24-120 are not up to the task unless you are heavily into cropping. These are mystifying offerings from Nikon.
Consider the superb 24-70, the 105 Micro Nikkor and even the 70 - 300 mm consumer lens which many pros now pack as an alternative to the pricey 70 - 200 mm.

Are you talking about the new 24-120mm f/4G? Why wouldn't it be a good choice for the D800? It has been designed for digital sensors and there are plenty of praising reviews of this lens.

I'm glad to see the validation no the 24-120. I tried that in anticipation of my D800 by using a D300, and I found it nice but soft. I ended up buying the 24-70 and while I never tried both head to head, I have been VERY happy with the 24-70 sharpness (as well as the other members of the trinity 14-24 and 70-200). I'm just finishing two weeks in the Smokies with mostly the 24-70 and couldn't be happier.
