If you do a lot of people shots, then probably not. I have the same conundrum. . . had the 35mm f1.8 on DX, which I swapped for the 50mm f1.8 on my D600.  Sometimes wish I had swapped the 85mm for the 135mm f2 but then that focal length was sometimes too long. Then I would have felt the need to swap the 180mm for a 300mm f4! That's just a whole heap of extra money. . . so I will just have to enjoy the wonderful gear that I now have - the same holy trinity that you have plus the 180mm f2.8. Cannot complain really!
