Re: Best lens for D800??

I wouldn't buy a camera with 174K clicks without knowing the cost to replace the shutter assembly. I would guess it to be at least 500 AUD but you should probably check with Nikon. You might get lucky and never have to replace it as long for as you own it, but I would be prepared to replace it at any time after 100K.

Without knowing more about your painting style (hyperrealism? loose watercolor?) and your process (10 x 15cm reference prints? life-size projections?) it is hard to make practical recommendations for lenses or even cameras within your budget constraints.
