I'm new to DSLRs.  Some photography enthusiast friends gave me a lot of instruction and I found myself enticed to a full frame D800.  That was a loong contemplation and a LOAD of research and advice.  But that said, I find the lens decision a little more challenging.

(I think) I want a nice prime for faces, family, friends. Thinking of a 50 or 85.  Either in a 1.4 or 1.8.

And (I think) I want a nice ll around zoom lens.

I'd love to hear some advice from all of you.  I'll keep poking around to continue learning.  Thank for your help!

D600 will be a better starter.

As for lens, I will say zoom first followed by primes.

Both 50 and 85 are very useful

I recommend a 50/1.4D and a 85/1.8G. You can pay for your 50/1.4D from the money you saved.
