With cost not being a factor...Zeiss 25mm f/2 Distagon,  Nikkor AFS 50mm f/1.4 G, and Nikkor 135mm f/2 DC on a D700.

If it was three primes on DX then it would be (irrespective if they are DX or FX lenses)

Sigma Art 14/1.4 (But I can well understand krag proposing the Zeiss Distagon 25/2)
Nikon 35/1.4 (Possibly Sigma Art 35/1.2)
MicroNikkor 200/4


If it was three primes on FX it would be
Sigma Art 20/1.4
Nikon 85/1.4
Nikon 300/2.8


If it was to use three primes but having both DX and FX body
Sigma Art 20/1.4
Nikon 58/1.4
Nikon 300/2.8

Well three is the maximum number of lenses I tend to have at any one time.

 

Currently I'm using a Sigma FP and the lenses are an 18mm f8 Funleader body cap lens (fixed focus and fixed aperture), a Sigma 45mm f2.8 DG DN I-series Contemporary and a Sigma 65mm f2 DG DN I-series Contemporary.

My choice for three Nikon primes would be my 35 F 2, D, 55 f 2.8 macro AI, and 85 f 1.8 D. Camera bodies FM-2n and my FE-2.
