Viable zoom alternatives? As in Sigma or Tamron or something? No.

IMO, the IQ difference between primes and zooms is considerably greater than the IQ difference between the brands here....
The difference in the zooms just ain't that much.....

So in a way, if IQ is really the issue, well...we all know the answer

Although I'm getting tired of lugging around 'the answer' and am about to spring for a 24-120 myself

I want my d800e to be a walkaround cam....it's the first non-pro body, lighter and smaller, that I've had the pleasure of using since a D70.
