what happened to your A50/1.7? going to sell it as well?

well, maybe you can sell both A50/1.7 and DA16-45 and replace it with either K/A 50/1.2. then you'll be completely happy.

anyway, I'm going on the same boat as you. I'm going to replace 4-7 lenses by next year to finance a new lens and a new camera/ or body. limiting my lenses further down to what I use regularly. the M85 is on the list but I will try to see if it is worth keeping after I get the Sigma 85. the FA100/2.8 might be on the trading block as well since I have the S1 90/2.5 and FA135/2.8. tough decision, but I'm loving the bokeh and color more on the S1 90 for macro and portrait and the FA135 for action/candid/portrait (although I would miss out the macro level resolution and superior CA handling of the FA100). we'll see by next year what happens.
I have the 50/1.7 stuck to my SLR with some B&W film in it. I rarely use that on the DSLR.

The 16-45 is very soft at 45 at f4, but sharpens quite a bit by f5.6, but I was hoping it would be decent even at f4. but it is not. If I need the 45 a lot for available light shooting, I might have to consider the 17-70.

Wow! the sigma 85/1.4 eh!, that seems to be an incredible lens from the early sample shots I've seen here. But, I would have kept the 77/1.8 if I use this focal length much.

I would definitely keep the VL 90/2.5 and FA135/2.8 over the 100 macro.

All four lenses were sold within hours of posting (F135, FA77, Sigma 100-300, and !5/4). the 31 sold within minutes the previous day....I couldn't even give away the FA*28-70 , but I like it very much........

The 135 is worth a WHOLE LOT more than what they fetch, you should be on the look out and get one, it's only a notch below the FA limiteds in my eyes.
