    Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 (for your people shots that give them a sense of place - and landscape - this also fits between focal lengths you already have).

    Nikon 85mm f/1.8 - or f/1.4 if you want to go crazy (your portrait lens).

    Nikon or other Macro (I use the 60mm G f/2.8 and it works fine for me on DX - usually manual focus - with your new tripod pick up a gear-head, focus rail and some stacking software).

    If you are at or near 300mm all the time on your zoom like I am then add the telephoto you need, the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 or the Nikon 300mm f/4 PF are my preferences (the 200-500 for birds and the 300 for landscape).

    Off on a tangent.
    Lyrics from the movie the Wizard of Oz.

    Ding dong, the witch is dead
    Which old witch?
    The wicked witch!
    Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead.

    Heigh-ho, the derry-o
    Sing it high, sing it low
    Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead.
