For faces I like the Sigma 85mm f1.4 HSM. I have used it on a D800e and it was superb. If anything I'd want a longer lens but the 85 is quite versatile if space is tight. I wouildn't go shorter.

For general use, events and travel I like the Nikon 24~120mm f4 VR. I have also used that on a D800 and liked that too. Decent range, decent IQ, not too heavy.

I don't have a D800 myself; I use a D700.
