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.

The outstanding 28mm F1.8 would be a better choice than the 50mm.
Excellent combo with the 85mm F1.8.
If you want the 50mm, the 50mm F1.8 AF-S is better(sharper) than the 50mm F1.4 AF-S.

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

Several choices... Even the prehistoric 28-105 does very well on D800.

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