THese photos are very encouraging to consider that combo.

would you mind briefly telling me your experience with it? is this lens at 2.8 as bad with the D800 as I read recently?

I have all the pro zooms with my D700 but I haven't taken the leap to the D800 yet but I will go on a very long trip and I'm planning to take only primes....

Thanks Nicolas. In the center, the 20 wide-open is actually very sharp. My wide-aperture shooting with the 20 generally isn't of subjects where corners matter... for that kind of shooting I'm usually at f/8 - f/11.

I think the 20 is a great choice for travel.
