Kelly and Roy,
Thanks for your reply to my D800 and the Tamron lens question.  Below is a list 
of my good glass.  Is my Nikon glass good enough for the D800? Kelly, you were 
a big help to me when we decided to purchase our 70-200.  You said we would 
never be sorry and we haven't been!  Now I am hoping the 17-55 is not a DX only 
lens so that I can't shoot the full 36MP.  Do you know? Thanks ever so much for 
your help! As always this group is wonderful! 

Nikkor AF-S 70-200/2.8 ED RV II, Nikkor AF-S VR
MICRO 105/2.8 IF-ED , Nikon 17-55MM F/2.8 G-APS ED-IF DX , and a  Nikon 
TC-20EIII 2X Teleconverter

yes Sheila, your lenses will fit on the D800.  That said, when the D200 
debuted, there were a number of people who were using lenses that were of 
fair quality... certainly good enough on their previous camera, who were now 
getting sub par results... The higher the image quality of a camera, the 
more lens quality that it takes to maintain that image quality.  Nikon has 
said, that if you are using good quality glass that this will not be an 
issue... so How good is the glass in your tamron lenses?  since I dont have 
either of them, I could not begin to say... but I raise the question... and 
I raise it for several of the nikon midrange lenses as well.  if they are 
good quality glass then they will be great on the D800 as well, but if not, 
then you will be very disapointed with them on the D800.

I have read that the new D800 can use DX lenses, too. I was wondering if it 
would us my two Tamron lenses? I have a 18-270 / 3.5-6.3 and a 28-75 / 
2.8.Can anyone tell me if they would work on the new D800?
