Help to decide. Lenses for D800

Hello everyone. First, please dont judge me for my english and for my "decisons".

I decided to become photographer. As far as I can get money - o dont want to go cheap, but also, I dont just can't (and dont want) to have everything the best.

I will do some document picturing (just a little), some portraits, lifetime/city/garden/street/wildlife, there WILL be birthdays and weddings (want to get money from it), and just for myself - want to do city nightshots.
just feel free to ask if I'm understandable
So, what lens would you offer to use on Nikon D800?

Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC

(why?) (camera) 485 (cameraname) NIKON-D3X
and price.

Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
why not? - wheight.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G
why not? - just some opinions says that Sigma is better...

or should I go for some zoom lens? (like Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED OR you can offer me something better?) (why? - Just I'm green, and this lens was offered by local dealer. is there anything better?)

and fird, as I understand, maby I still will have money for third lens (I would like to have it) what is tele zoom. (like Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

every opinion is appreciated, and thank you for helping to decide.

Nikon D800
