28mm vs 35mm. If could only buy 3 different sizes, what would they be for a feature?

What 3 would everyone recommend, I am shooting a feature with plenty of wide shots, and internal shots, the whole mix...
Here is what I am considering;
f 2.8 28mm
f 1.4 35mm
lense 2 and 3
f 1.4 50mm
f 2.0 85mm
f 2.5 105mm
To me the the 28mm seems a bit slow at f 2.8, am I better off with a 35mm at 1.4? I really do need all the light I can get.
Heres a link to all the nikkon lenses available.

Another thing you might take into consideration is how much these particular lenses breath. My experience is that most lenses designed for still cameras breath like crazy to the point of being unuseable unless you can avoid changes in focus during the shot.

I guess those are only new right, and I should go to ebay then for used, but I dont want scratches on my lens or mold or dust, kind of risky on ebay right?

Perhaps it's personal taste but I've always had a dislike for the 28mm unless absolutely necessary - seems like a "bastard" focal length between 24mm and 35mm.
I always like to test lenses before purchase because there really is so much at stake.
