I'd mix it up a bit:

14mm Samyang (unless you absolutely, positively need the very best ultra wide AND shoot this focal length range a LOT, in which case skip the Nikon/Tamron 14 (yup, you read that right) and get one of the only two ultrawides in the 14/15 range that I deem having excellent image quality, those being the 3 grand Zeiss 15 or the Nikon 14-24. For most people, the samyang will do fine)

24/1.4G Nikkor

35/1.4 Sigma DG "Art Series" (Yup, you read that right. Got it and the Nikkor, and I'm recommending the Sigma over the Nikkor)

50/1.8 (save the money, it's a better lens than the 1.4 50)

85/1.8G (save some cash here too, unless you're really a bokeh freak)

70-200/2.8G VR-II (because there is very little in the currently available primes that's any better)

(and then get the 300/2.8 later when you've got the six grand lying around!)

Thanks for the feedback - I like your kit recommendation btw - Although I have to admit I am not familiar with "Samyang" glass - I assume Chinese?

This is what you recommend:

Wow thats a great value if it delivers the good for under US $400.

I will most likely get primes with the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII ....
