Default Upgrade to FX and list of blockbuster lenses?

I have a Nikon D7100 and plan to upgrade to an Nikon FX camera. At the Photokina, I tested D810 and D4S and they are fantastic cameras! Looking at the budget, I may not upgrade the body to FX right away. However, I want to buy good lenses for the upgrade in the back of my mind. Next year D810 could evolve into D820, so I want to focus on good lenses for the current and the FX camera. The 3rd party lenses at Photokina are pretty impressive too. Currently I own a Tokina lens which is pretty good. Is there a recommended path for purchasing lenses? My interests are Portrait, Wide angle for panoramic shoots, Building Architecture (Exterior and Interior).

Thank you in advance for any info.

What lenses (FX and DX) do you currently have?

Why switch? What do you hope to gain when you switch from DX to FX? Do you know what you'll lose?
