    If you only have a DSLR and 85mm prime, you would probably appreciate having a zoom lens that covers wide to short tele. Some candidates:
    1) 18-55 VR f/3.5-5.6 DX
    2) Tamron 17-50 f/2.8
    3) 17-55 f/2.8 DX
    4) 18-70 f/3.5-4.5 DX
    5) 18-105 VR f/3.5-5.6 DX
    6) etc

    personal preference of course

    Whether to get a new camera body or not, is entirely up to you and your budget
    Exploring! :)

    save up and buy both together,

    buy anyone now will make a "handicap" camera system, can not unleash it full potential.

    i would suggest u to get d700.
    I was using d90 as well with lenses like 10-20mm, 35 1.8mm and 18-135mm. But decided to sell all those only to upgrade cam body to D700
    U would feel a big different in term of color, sharpness and body is heavier.

    Gotta catch them all, pal!

    I really can't decide it for you. You need to figure out what you need or want more. I'd get them both simply because I think one deserves the other.
