Well, it looks like if I stick to the original question, i.e. Nikon camera, the D4 is the winner, followed by the D800/E.

One thing that puzzles me though is some have said they would like the (dream) 16-85 f/4 .. .why f/4 and not say f/2.8 or f/1.8?  Is there a limitation to the max aperture because it is a tele?  Anyone care to explain this to me?  Thanks!!

If you shoot DX, the two best Nikon zooms to replace the a kit lens are the f2.8 zoom and the f4.  Since the f2.8 doesn't have VR and has a really short focal length, the 16-85 with f4 AND VR is what I really want.
