I'm leaning towards the 17-35 f/2.8 but I have no experience with this lens. Other options is to just stick with the 20 f/2.8 or complement it with the 18-35 f/3.5-4.5 (cheap but slow) or the newer 16-35 f/4 VR (really wide and VR)...

Loving the D700 by the way (not that the D7000 was a bad camera, it was actually a really great camera with a fantastic DR, at least as long as there was enough light)...

I have the D700 and 17-35.  But as much as I love this lens I would suggest the 18-35 and spend the difference on another additional lens.  The 12 mp FX sensor isn't as demanding as the higher mp sensors.  Probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless you need F2.8
