Why use inferior lenses on D800

It may just be me but I just don't get why some people are prepared to use say the 24-85 lens on the D800?

Often I see the phrase " I use it as a lightweight travel lens" surely if you are using it as a travel lens you may be going to a place you may never go again, why wouldn't you want the best images you can get?

I understand why people want to be lightweight but not at the expense of sacrificing IQ after all we are usually talking about a couple hundred grams.

Everone is different and people should do as they please but to be honest I just don't get putting "make do" glass on a high res camera.

Don't shoot me down it's just a view!!
