I have a Nikon 24-70 also but you are going to see a remarkable difference with it on the D800. Looks like your just going to have to wait for your Nikon to be satisfied.

I see on your introduction that you are a portrait photographer, I would suggest the 85mm especially with the D800 because of the range. The F/1.4 is marvelous but the F/1.8 ain't bad for the price diff.

Incidentley, I was a Navy photog for 8 years but I'm sure way before your time because of the cameras you listed. 99% of my work in the military was with a 4 X 5 Speed Graphic during and after the Korean War.

I was in the air force from 92-00. In about '98 digital began being adopted. You are right, the 85mm 1.8g is a great lens and will be added soon.
