Zeiss or Nikon lenses for D800 camera?

I understand not every lens are going to be able to give me the maximum resolution the (D/800) camera is capable of, since I'm going to buy new lenses may I ask shall I go for Zeiss or Nikon lenses?

Please note, I haven't try Zeiss but I read has good bokeh and color rendering, however looking from internet samples I felt less sharpness and crispness than Nikon, also some reviewers say Nikon are better, is it true?

Another thing, are old Nikon AIS manual lenses like 35mm f1.4 capable to meet D/800 demand

Most my shooting are landscapes, nature, building, historical places. Focal lengths I want are 24mm, 35mm, 85mm.

Please let me know your opinion.
Many thanks.
