Re: One zoom for D800?

If IQ is the most important, I'd get the holy trinity of lenses then (all Nikkor).

24-70mm f/2.8
70-200mm f/2.8
14-24mm f/2.8

I have each of these lenses and they are beauties. However, as a walk around kit, they are a lot to lug. That's why I picked up the 28-300mm VRII lens as my travel lens with my D700. That lens is clearly not up the quality of the three listed above, but jettisoning several pounds from my bag when walking is worth it for me.
