Wow you do shoot a little bit of everything don't you??
Well if zooms are an advantage for you, the trio of 14-24, 24-70, and 70-200VR2 are the premiere ones that will do a little of everything for you. All three are phenominal on FX bodies, including the D800.
If primes are your thing and you want to have some lightweight affordable ones with good IQ, I'm hearing great things about the 3 new f1.8 primes (28, 50 and 85) for the money. I haven't used the 28 and 85 yet, but I've ordered them this week (stinkin' backorder on the 28...)
For macro, you'll regularly read great things about the Sigmas (105/150/180... and especially the 150), while Nikon's 105 is also a great option. Lots of people say the 90 Tamron is good, and IQ wise it sure is (I just can't live with the AF performance and build in comparison to the Sigma or Nikon).
If you prefer the "quality" items, want a zoom for event work, and want the top IQ... spring for the 24-70. It's really everything you would want for that description. From there, find out what FL's you want to find primes at and you'll get lots of good suggestions from the folks around here... ENJOY!!
