I'm interested in purchasing a D300, but have $3200 to spend. What other equipment would make best sense for street, landscape, and some natural light portraiture?

Already own a Nikkor 50mm 1.8, and an 18-70mm...

Others suggest to give up on the D300 and purchase instead a D80 body... or maybe a slightly used D200...?

Other suggestions I've received:

The 85mm 1.8 or 1.4
The Sigma 10-20mm
The Sigma 30mm 1.4 (and maybe get rid of the 50mm 1.8)
Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8
SB-600

All suggestions welcome!
