I got a Nikon D800 for Christmas, but all my existing lenses are DX format. I'm looking to get at least one versatile, general purpose zoom that's full-frame, auto-focus compatible, and under $500. Any suggestions? I'd really wanted the Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro until I realized it wasn't full-frame. I can't seem to find something equivalent.

Depending on what range you want, these are all great lenses, and are all built to Nikon's highest standards, and will outlast most of Nikons latest crop of Pro Glass.

AF-Nikkor 20-35mm f/2.8D

AF-Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8D

AF-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D IF-ED

Call it yesterday's holy trinity.

might as well put some glass on there that is worthy of your camera.
