Nikon I believe has recommendations for the D800 and Roger of Lensrentals has published his own list here:

Agreed on all accounts.  Is Roger saying if the lens (while listed in his list), but NOT linked, is not reccomended?  I.E. the linked lenses are as good?

Yes, as I understand it those with links are recommended.

But I think Roger eventually gave up on the listing when others started to argue why their lens wasn't listed as 'preferred' - as seems to be the norm these days (arguments).

Roger does a good job I believe and is one of the few I trust.

Ming Thein's site:

is another good one IMO.

Obviously all opinions are somewhat subjective, even my own.

At the sake of repetition: Don't forget the good tripod! - they're not cheap and you should factor one in from the financial aspect.

Cheers.
