Appreciate all the informative replies!

I still haven't decided but you guys have helped a lot and given me much to think about.

I'm going back and forth now between two scenarios:

18-35 f3.5-4.5 + 24-120 f4

or

18-35 + 50 f1.8 + 85 f1.8

I'm thinking the first combo would be perfect for my landscape and all my everday uses. Although I would want the 85 f1.8 later on for portrait(I would also get a tele zoom in the not too distant future, in both scenarios).

However, I also think the latter combo would force me to be creative. I would have my landscapes covered of course, but then I was thinking I had my everyday uses covered by the last 30-35 mm on the 18-35 lens and the 50 lens. 85 would be my portrait lens.

We'll see how it goes.

Feel free to chip in...

I think the 18-35 + 50 f1.8 + 85 f1.8 is the far better set up of the two options.  IMO, you could drop the 50 f1.8 and use that $200 to start saving for a used Nikon 70-200 f4 zoom.
