V3 or more FX/DX lenses?

For a V1 owner with a FT-1 and budget of $1400 would you rather upgrade to the V3 or get another lens for the FT-1?  I shoot mostly kids sports (indoor and out), kid dance and theater with either the 18.5mm f1.8 or the 50mm f1.8 G.

Given that no one knows how good the V3 is this kind of jumps the gun but assume a 1 stop improvement over the V1.  Still saving my pennies…but it's always good to have a goal even if you change your mind later to spur on the saving for a toy.
