I have a few questions regarding a new lens to buy to go with the D700. I currently own D80, Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye, 20mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, some flashes and umbrellas. Mainly shoot concerts and am now getting into portraits and a wedding in September.
After buying the D700, also with a 35mm f/2, I will more than likely sell the D80, 18-135mm and am undecided about the 10.5mm fisheye. I am then stuck with deciding which lens to buy with that money. I am stuck on 2 choices;
1. Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8
2. Nikkor 85mm f/1.4
Which would you recommend buying and why? And would you keep or sell the fisheye?
Thanks for your help.

I'd go with the Nikkor 85mm for your portraiture and some of the concerts (if you are close enough). I'd keep the D80 and try out a 70-200mm f/2.8 AFS VR lens on the D700. If you are happy with the performance of that lens on the FF body the by all means add that lens for additional concert and wedding use. If the 200mm is long enough on your D700 for your preferred usage, then sell the D80 - else keep the D80 for more effective reach from that lens.
It is still ISO, aperture and shutter speed, right?
