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.

The three I want on Z won't be a reality for a while as the Z6II is purely a hobby camera for now and justifying yet another fast 50 and a 105 MicroNikkor for a hobby system isn't easy.

 

The trio would, however, be the Z 35/1.8 S I have got, a Z 50/1.2 S and a Z 105/2.8 MC VR S.

 

For now, I have the AF-S 24/1.8 on a FTZ, the Z native 35 and the short tele vacant for the mirrorless system.

 

 

On the D750, I use either a nice retro set of manual focus lenses. 35/2 Nikkor O, Ai 50/1.2 and Ai 105/2.5 or an AF-S 24/1.8, an AF-S 35/1.8 and an AF 105/2DC.

On the Df- Nikkor-O 35/2, factory Ai'd; 55mm F1.2 Ai, and 105/2.5 Ai. 

 

I have a lot of lenses, those are the favorites in F-Mount.

The wife and I visit a new state park almost every week-end for walks, never an over night, to buggy. We use a FE, D750 and I've found that I use a 24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4 and a 105 macro f/2.8. If I need to get closer or farther away, I walk.

What I plan on shooting dictates my lens selection. Where I’m going to shoot likewise dictates selection.
First choice: Nikkor 50 f 1:2; 105 f 2:5 and 35 f 2. Modestly wide, very fast, and a short telephoto.
