1. 24-70 for sure, 24mm is 24mm again, sharpness is comparable with some primes.
2. 14-24 if you didn't mind no thread for filters, wide and sharp, center to corners.
3. 70-200 if you didn't mind some vignetting.
4. 200-400, fast and versatile.
*TC14EII/ TC17EII, I, too, am looking for one for extra reach.
PC TS lenses for landscape, product, architectural shots.
And of course, those fast 300, 400, 500, 600 lenses if you could afford them.
my IDEAL set has not been released yet (*), besides, unless you are in a rush, I'd wait till next PMA to see what's coming soon. However, just to reply to your question, in the ACTUAL lens line, I'd choose:
Primes: 24 PC-E - 35 F/2 - 85 F/1.8 - 135 F/2 DC OR 35 F/2 - 105 F/2.8 VR
zoom: 17-35 F/2.8 - 28-75 F/2.8 (or 24-70 if you can afford that, but in this case you could think if you really the FF range from 17 to 24) - 70-200 VR
My ideal set on a FF camera could be:
24-135 F/4 AF-S N ED VRII macro 1:2 for traveling
a 16-42 F/2.8 AF-S N ED to go VERY wide
a 25-50 F/2 AF-S N ED for low light street photography (prime zoom)
a 90-135 F/2 AF-S N ED VRII optimized for portraits (prime zoom)
a 70-280 F/4 AF-S N ED VRII macro 1:2
a 120-400 AF-S VRII (already existing by Sigma) to go even further.
I think the reduced excursion of each lens could lead to an excellent optical quality while maintaining size and price relatively low (even if AF-S and VR of course need their space in the lens), so that for each kind of thing you could take with you only the walkaround zoom AND one of the other lenses, remaining light. Just one requirement, if possible: durable METAL mount, NOT plastic
50/1.4 was an awkward FL for me on DX but it is fantastic on FX!
14-24 Simply awesome. One of the best Nikon has come out with in awhile and how can you not get it.
85/1.4 Not as good on FX as on DX :-( I absolutely loved this lens on DX and it pains me to say this. I'm waiting on a new 135 AF-S.
35/2 Still great on FX.
70-200 I dont get all this fuss about corner sharpness. It's superb on the FX as far as I can see and it's one of my most used lenses given all the kids sports in my life. I dont shoot landscape with it. How many people do?
Sigma 150 macro All I can say is wow it lives up to all the hype and it's superb. The longer FL macros make sense on FX.
I was lusting for the 200/2 and ZF lines when I was sharpness obsessed but not after getting the D3. All lenses look sharper on FX and all my lenses are now plenty sharp for FX. Now sharpness is just one factor along with contrast, bokeh, color etc.
