If cost is an issue, try the zeiss 50mm f/1.4 zf lens. At f/4 -you should get good pics on D800. But the same is achievable on f/2.8 on an APSC sensor. The lens is small and coupled with a small DSLR should work fine for casual photography.

I am not sure if I understand what tabletop means or what your closest focussing distance is going to be. There is a new lens zeiss 135 mm f/2 coming up for $2000 which provides better resolution than 100m f/2 zeiss lens suggested here -but your closest focussing distance will increase.

thanks
