I am now learning how to use my new D800E.
My current FX lenses are the Nikkor 16-35 f/4 VR and the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VR 2.

I do mostly landscape photography but also do some street photography. Obviously, when walking around with my camera and taking random shots, I am not carrying my tripod, so being able to "properly" shoot and hold the camera steady enough so that I can take advantage of the cameras resolution is very important.

I have considered various lenses and I was impressed with the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED weight and IQ. But I do not do Macro photography, so the salesman opined that wasn't the lens I should consider because of focusing, etc. I have also considered the 24-70mm 2.8 and the two latest 85mm lenses. I also looked at the AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR, but although I liked its range for a walk around lens, it just didn't seem to have the IQ. The salesman said it's IQ was just as good as my 16-35, but it sure didn't look like it to me...

What do you think would me the best choice for me as a high IQ walk around lens?

Thank you...
