Well I would buy for the future, get lenses with high sharpness so you wont replace or outgrow them 1 year down the line. My 2 general use lenses for a D800, thinking about price-quality and getting the best out of that sensor would be Sigma 35mm f1.4 and nikon 70-200mm f4. I would go with this over a shorter zoom such as the 24-70, which doesnt quite have the optics of the f2.8/4 70-200 zooms, and certainly doesnt have the optics of the Sigma 35mm 1.4.

Personally I wouldn't go for a super zoom at all as the quality level is much lower than those I mentioned and I don't see why you need a D800 then. I've used one many times before with a 12mp camera and they work 'fine' (although slowly), but with the 36mp D800 I think its a bit of a waste.
