Overall I'd say the 16-35. If you are doing mostly closer in half body / portraits this would be my first choice. If you are doing more full body with stretched out hands and feet, it will work but may give you some distortion of the hands and feet if they are at the periphery of the frame. If you have a Nikon 16mm or a Sigma 15mm they will work well with a 1.4 TC and this would probably be my preference for the full body with hands and feet for more manageable distortion.
Nikon D800, Nikon D7000, Nauticam, Inons, Subtronic Novas. Lens collection - 10-17, 15, 16, 16-35, 14-24, 24-70, 85, 18-200, 28-300, 70-200, 60 and 105, TC's. Macs with Aperture and Photoshop.
