Will the Nikon 50mm primes even be able to resolve 36mp without stopping down to f/8? That's the point. The D800 will require some excellent lenses to flex its superiority.

Sure. And the 50/1.4G and 1.8G are excellent. The reviews bear that out - on the D3X, both do great by f/2.8.

The nice thing about Nikon is that excellent lenses start at $150 or so. And spending more doesn't necessarily guarantee better optics...

I'd rather ask what budget camera is best for the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8.

Feel free to start your own thread. Note that the 24-70 at 50mm is not better than the 50/1.8G.
