What about getting a prime or two?  One of the reasons I would like to go to full frame would be to have my 50mm lens back to the way it looked and worked on my film cameras.  Light, fast, much less cost buying one by one (depending on max aperture) than those pro zooms.  The Sigma 35 1.4 is getting all sorts of raves (relatively pricey, though).  I think getting a prime would be a great way to go plus, depending on the prime, you would not have to worry about corner performance or whether the iq is up to your dx kit.  The 85 1.8 is supposed to be a great performer.  You will probably want that fl eventually.  Think along fresh lines.
