Good to see more people bringing their input. Thank You All!
I’d definitely look at the sigma 180mm, it is just out and though I have not used it (yet) the tests are pretty impressive, certainly a step up from the aging nikon 180mm and perhaps even the sigma 150mm.
I will! Sigma seems to change the game lately and this may be a winning ticket. I can try it and I will decide if it's better than 150/2.8 or not. Then I'll know for sure which one to keep!
The micro for close-ups, low distortion, copy work, sharp all around the aperture dial affordable, etc., etc.
I'll remember your advice if I'll look for this type of work. At this time I'm focused 100% on shooting people.
One lens, 70-200, end of story. I shot some headshots with my vr1 (before i sold it), at 100mm on a d7000, f6.3, the files were so sharp they could almost kill you.
I know that most people will prefer this way but as of me I'd rather work with two bodies and two primes. I'll use the zoom only when I know for sure that I need to be super-fast.
seems like a 24-70/70-200 combo would be perfect,they do great in these type of situations
I see that this is most popular option. :P

85/1.4 Sigma is there... there is little chance someone to convince me to replace it with other lens
And I wouldn't try, hence no reference to Nikon.

If you want the best then the Nikkor 24-70 2.8, 70-200VR, and 85G 1.4. The 105VR would be nice addition also.
Definitely it seems that I am in a minority preferring primes instead heavy zooms
