Best lens for D800 - - - No such thing!

I could recommend lenses for your intended purpose but I would not claim those lenses are the best for any FF Nikon DSLR.  
My PREFERED lens for portrait is Nikon 135mm f/2.0 D DC AF
My PREFERED lens for any photography is Nikkor NOCT 58mm f/1.2 (manual focus film)
.
Normally, I noticed getting better results at  2 f/stops from full aperture.  That could be a matter of preference / taste.
.
Another prime is Nikon 85mm f/1.8 D for portrait.
I prefer the FX D lenses over the E and G versions for the better MANUAL focusing control.  D lenses are also AF lenses but the lens has no built-in AF motor.
.
Consider Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8 D for walk around lens.
