Not a bad suggestion!
I'm trying to simplify my set up but that is certainly an option.
According to photozone, the Sigma is very poor in the corners and rates the 1.4D way better than the Sigma. Not sure how to interpret these results...thoughts?
If you're shooting on DX this is likely less of an issue. If you're on FX it may be an issue if you're looking for a general purpose lens. If you're just shooting portraits at fairly large apertures, the corners won't be an issue. So on an 85, it's probably not too big of a deal... but on the Sigma 50, I really didn't like how soft the corners were on my D600.
The best advice here, IMO, is to rent these lenses before buying. I've dealt with borrowlenses.com (never again) and lensrentals.com before and liked the latter. If you rent some Sigma lenses from LR, and decide you want to buy, you're eligible for a discount. So there's that.
Now, if what you want is a 105mm lens, you've got plenty of options.
