Re: Are differences in lenses only seen at 100%?

Yes, I did get the 24-85VR specifically to be a travel lens when I got the D800 last August - it's quite a bit lighter than the 24-70, so it's more comfortable to carry for an entire day than a pro-grade lens would be. I still have intentions of getting something like the 24-70 for the D800, but I'm holding off until I see whether Nikon will decide to bring out something new this year. The 24-85 has actually surprised me with its quality. I also have several other lenses that are OK on the D800, including a 50mm f/1.8 and a 35mm f/2, and my old 17-55 DX lens works really well on the D800 in 1.2 crop mode as well as DX, so I'm not in a hurry.
