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.
