Seriously, bite the bullet and buy a used Nikon 24-70. The resolution of the D800 requires the best glass you can afford.

It’s this simple.

If you don’t want to buy 24-70, get the Tamron. Don’t get the rest you name for landscape.

Differences in sharpness at f8 or f10 among lenses are as significant as the differences wide open. One of the silliest myths on the internet or maybe just people half blind is that all lenses are equal at f8. Not even close that way.

24-120 is very good on dx, can be seriously considered for landscape seasoned with travel.

Good luck with the choice,
