In reply to:

un1que: I like it, should be great for environmental portraiture. Still, I’d rather see a 24mm though.

My dilemma is…should I order a D800 or wait for the forthcoming Sony a99???

There are no Sony lenses in this range, unfortunately...
They have the excellent Zeiss 24/2, but it's a full stop slower than Nikon's. Add to that that Sony lenses fare much worse at higher isos, and you are looking at 2.5 or so, when it comes to light.
The 35 1.4 Minolta seems to have a nice character, but it also seems quite soft, and dated. 85Z and the 135Z are impressive optics, but lack SSM (very useful with such fast primes, both to correct focus and to ensure more precise focusing).
If/when Sony will upgrade its lens line with sensible choices (just see the price for their 500G), then it'll become a nice choice for prime shooters.
I still dream of a A900, wonderful, but wonderful colours and ergonomics, but lenses are not there...
My 2c, of course...
