Selling Canon Gear, and will have $6500 to spend

So after seeing the tests with the D800 I am switching from Canon to Nikon. I am going to be selling my:

85 1.2
50 1.4
100 2.8 macro
1.4x extender
580ex2 flash

Along with my tax rebate I only will have around $6500 to spend in total to start my photography business.

Any thoughts? This is what I've been thinking about.

Nikon D800 - $3000
Nikon 85 1.4 - $1700
Nikon 50 1.4 - $440
Nikon 105 VR - $899
Nikon SB 910 - $546.95

That should bring me very close to the $6500, another thought was to swap the 85 1.4 with the 85 1.8 which would save me $1200, ditch the macro and get the new Nikon 70-200 VRII with the two primes.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. The other option would be to stick with Canon and get the 5D mark III, but I would have to sell one of my lenses + tax money to get it.

Any suggestions from fulltime wedding/portrait photographers would be appreciated.
