Despite my current problems with my D800 (which I am sure are unusual) I have been delighted with mine.  I have the 85/1.8, which is excellent on the D800, 70-300, 24-70 and 14-24.

The 14-24 is spectacular.  Actually, so are the others.  So long as you don't want to fit a filter, there's no technical reason to avoid the 14-24 - there may be a financial one!

Have fun!

I've come to learn that the financialone is the larger objection... I would love to see some shots taken with the 85 1.8... specifically... wide open or nearly that   I am really buying it for portrait work and I am curious to see what the DOF with the D800 combination will look like.  If you are able to post something... thanks in advance
