I think you will find just as many people in this forum,  that will tell you, and show you examples, that most modern FX lenses are capable of excellent results with the D800/E. Of course, some are better than others, and the very best will extract more juice out of the 36MP sensor, ( and many debate which lenses those are, and which "smokes", "blows out of the water", "destroys", which) but that does not mean other lenses won't cut it, or that only with the best can you produce great photos with the D800. I also believe you will find that many feel that the 18-105 kit lens is a bit outmatched by the D7000 sensor, and better lenses will do that sensor better justice, but it is still capable of great images and that proves the same point. In both cases, it is simply a matter that good is always outdone by better, but that does not make good any less good.
