You would have far better off buying a cheaper body and spending the remainder on a good lens...If I have to choose ONE lens only (for all around shooting) it would be the 24-70 2.8, with maybe a TC.

That is why I said maybe ...After spending $US2000.00 on a good lens - Only maybe. But with the 24-70 and a 1.7TC on a c-sensor body he could prob do almost as well as a 200 on the FF body. Then, when the occasion arose for a wide angle, he would have the 24 (equiv to 35 on FF).

When he money becomes available get the D800, hopefully the bugs will be worked out by then...

Hey, here is an idea, sell the D800 for 4000 on EBay and get the cropped sensor body, the TC and the 24-70 with the proceeds...

The 24-70 is not listed as compatible with any Nikon teleconverters nor are any other wide zooms, and I wouldn't attempt to use it with one. Chances are the rear element and TC lens would make contact at some point in the zoom range.
