The 70-300mm will work just fine on your D800, it's not a DX lens. Unless you are against purchasing second hand I would get the 70-200mm f2.8 VRI instead of the 70-200mm F4. I would even purchase the older 80-200mm with no VR over the 70-200 f4.

The 70-300 is a good lens. Unless you really need something to work in low light it is a heck of a bargain and easier to carry around.

Thanks, I forgot the 70-300 wasn't a DX lens. Boy, I'm sure leaning toward an f4 70-200 though.
