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.

Tamron 28-75mm without the built in motor... $300ish used... Awesome lens ... Sharp in center at all apertures and sharp in corners by f5.6

Slight step down in sharpness and you can get a bit more range:

nikon 28-105mm

nikon 24-85mm 3.5-4.5

tamron 24-135mm ..Slows af but good range and IQ
