I think with the D800, you might start to see some issues with the older lens designs. I'd probably do the D800 first (along with the new computer... lol) and see what lenses you like with that body. The 28-105 will probably start to show it's issues at such high resolution (as I'm guessing my 24-85 will...)

The 85 1.4g is an indulgence you can probably wait on. I'm seeing the 85 1.4D going used in the ~$900 range. That would seem to more closely follow the "bang for the buck" lens choices you've already made. (I tend to go that direction, as well...)

Sounds like a fun "problem" to solve, regardless!
