I recently bought a Nikon D800, and was wondering if you guys could give me lens recommendations to take advantage of its sharpness. I already have a micro 105 and the excellent 16-35. I'm looking for a sharp zoom and one prime.

Any of the Zeiss range of lenses. Take your pick. Totally manual focus, but totally worth every penny (I have the 100 f/2 Makro-Planar).
The Nikkor 24mm f/1.4, and 85mm f/1.4 won't disappoint either.
Sharp zooms look at the 14-24 f/2.8, 24-70 f/2.8 or 70-200 f/2.8.
I would hasten to add if you're willing and able to invest in a D800 which is by no means a beginners camera, you should have an idea of the genres of photography you're into, and therefore the types of glass you want to put on it!
I got a D800 a month ago and have had to swap nearly all my lenses too!
I personally use:
Nikon 50mm 1.4f AF-S,
Nikon 18-35mm 3.5-4.5 AF (Very nice wide lens, if a little soft on the d800),
Sigma 150mm 2.8f EX Macro (AMAZING portrait and macro lens),
I now need a short-medium zoom to fill the "everyday" gap.
