Best second lens for FX to cover portrait, events, street ?

After I upgraded from D80 & 18-200mm, to D610, the first lens I got is 16-35mm f4. To complement that what would be my best bet to cover: portrait, events, action, street - all with a single lens? I am casual photographer, like to go to shooting trips, hiking and events (indoor and outdoor).  The choices are:

1. 80-200mm f2.8 AF

2. 135mm f2 DC

3. 28-300mm f3.5-5.6

4. 70-200mm 2.8 VRII

I have the micro 105mm and I would get a 50mm 1.4 later anyway. Welcome any other suggestions?

Many thanks in advance.
