Heavy Edit to my original reply...

I think what each photographer photographs has a huge bearing on this topic. [.....] But in general, I just don't see the point of only going for "character" lenses that suffer in the basics of optic design (due to age of when they were designed) just because one dislikes the modern look of images, other than if your work is strongly bokeh oriented. Get better at post is my usual recommendation - it's an area every single one of us can always grow in, myself included.


So is there a set of lenses you trust on the D800E/D810, then, aM?  I interested in which set of lenses satisfy your criteria (within reason), whether older or newer glass, 3rd party, 1st party, doesn't matter.  I'd prefer if we limit the discussion to lenses under $2K though.  The exotics and OTUSes of the world are pretty well known.

But which lenses, out of the masses, would you pick out under your more rigid standards?
