Re: D800 with classic lens

My solution is in the Nikkor 17-35 F2.8, the 24-120 F4 and the 70-200 F4. I guess the weakest part of this solution is the middle but that seems to a general sore point for Nikkor zoom lenses. This is a practical solution weight wise and general IQ wise but doesn't offer the speed of F2.8 lenses in the top two lenses. However, they both have very capable VR which often trumps a slightly faster shutter speed.
