Getting the best out of D800?

Only had the D800 a couple of days and don't have any lenses at the moment.

I should receive the 50mm f1.8 today just to get me started.

My dilemma is I obviously want the best possible IQ but like all of us I want it in as light a package as possible. I mainly do landscape and general photography like city breaks etc.

I am torn between the 24-120 and the beat, the 24-70 f2.8 I have seen very mixed reviews about the 24-120, but can it produce "tact sharp" images. No point in having the 36mp if I can't see them!

The 24-120 is going for an inflated price in the uk making the 24-70 only £300 more.

Then I suppose there is the 16-35 f4 but obviously that doesnt give me the range.

How heavy is the 24-70 after carting it around for a few hours?

Any additional comments appreciated, especially on these and any other lens recommendation.
