Lenses for D700 in $2K

Hi All,
I purchased my D700 with kit lens a yr ago and now i want to uprgrade on lenses.

I m planning to sold the kit lens (don't know how much will i get in return) and purhase new lenses.
I have around $ 2K to spend.

I dont want to keep too many lenses, two will be fine for me(at least for next 2-3 years before i can go for uprgrade).

I like to shoot (in order of priority) landscapes, night shots(city night life) and occasionally portraits.

I m planning to go to Vegas n Grand Canyon this Thanks giving...so i have to better hav something before that.
I have just picked up few options like:

NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, Zeiss Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 ZF.2(i m not sure how good picking zeiss will be).

If zeiss( or Nikkor 50mm 1.4G) can be effectively used for night shots then i might invest rest of money in some good walk around lens.
