I went to my local camera shop on Saturday meaning to buy either the Nikkor 14-24 or 16-35 lens to go on my D700.

An hour, a trade in, and a sum of money later I left with the 16-35 f4 and a new Nikon D800 :-)

I looked at and tried the new D810 - but couldn't justify the extra 700 for what I could see as no discernable difference in IQ.

I think I now have the camera and lenses to see my days out :-)

what have the Roman's ever done for us?

Nice way to spend an hour! You should love the 16-35mm.
I have an old 17-35 2.8mm and it is one of my favorite lenses; above and underwater!
Enjoy.

Thanks - I look forward to getting out eary on the weekend to try it out (it'll probably rain now!)

The 17-35 is supposed to be a legendary lens - getting one now is very tricky meaning prices are really high even for used ones.

Congratulations!

This demonstrates the danger in entering a photograpy store (or Apple Store for that matter).

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I know you want to hear congrats and everything. But I will be honest, there have been lots of issues with the D800 including a class action lawsuit in regards to Nikon not repairing the D800 and tons of users with complaints of dust and oil appearing on the sensors. This is also one reason the D810 was just released to fix the issue on the D800.. Make sure you get a warranty and pixel peep for a few weeks to make sure yours doesn't end up with that issue. Owners that sent theirs in for cleaning would get them back clean. But within a few hours of using, oil and dust spots would re appear. I really hope yours doesn't end up like that.

I thought that was the D600?

Law firm already filed a class action lawsuit for the Nikon D600 dust/oil spot issue | Nikon Rumors

not heard anything about an oil issue with the D800 but I'll keep my eyes open

It was the D600. I got the D610 after Roger Cicala of lensrental.com gave it a clean bill of health . . .
