Why wouldnt you just get the 14-24?

Maybe it's not in the OPs budget.

As for as the 11-16, it's a great lens, but on the D800, DX lenses are not going to be all that fun as a main lens. The images will be fine, but you are only seeing the center crop of the viewfinder. Good in a pinch, bad as an everyday wide angle.

I have the Tokina AT-X 16-28 2.8 and I love it. Sharpness is extremely good, it has a useful range of focal lengths and it's only slightly more expensive than the Tokina 11-16 2.8.

+1 on the 16-28 Tokina vs. the 11-16 @ 16. Did a quick side by side yesterday not even close, love the 16-28 on the D800
