When I upgraded from a D300 to a D3s I had to sell my DX 10-20mm Sigma and chose to replace it with the Nikkor 16-35mm f/4. That is a perfectly good lens and I continued to use it when I changed from the D3s to a D800.
Eventually, last December, I decided to bite the bullet and splash out on a 14-24mm f/2.8 and the dedicated Lee filter kit. It really is a great lens but whether you can justify £800 (secondhand) for the lens and another £400 for the filters only you can say.
When travelling abroad and trying to keep within airline cabin baggage limits, I take my D800 with a 28-300mm lens and the 20mm f/2.8 prime. The 200mm is absolutely OK in terms of image quality but, of course, it lacks the versatility of a w/a zoom.
At the end of the day, as with everything else in this wonderful hobby of ours, it is horses for courses.
