Next lens help?

Hello everybody my b-day is coming in a couple of weeks and I was thinking that maybe a new lens would be a good idea, the problem is that I don't know what lens makes sense to get next...so far here is what I have

Manual
50mm 1.4
50mm 2.0
28mm 2.8
135mm 2.8

Autofocus
DA 15
DA 40
DA 35 Macro
DA 77
DA 18-55 al II
Tamron 10-24
Tamron 90 Macro
Sigma 70-300
Sigma 100-300 F4


With that said, this is what I was thinking:

1-Get a WR lense like 18-135 WR (1 it's WR and 2 can use it as a walkaround lens)
2-Get the 50 1.4 with autofocus
3-Get the DA 21mm to complete my limited collection

Thank you in advance for your help.

I like the second option - would DA*55 be too expensive?

You have a lot of primes. You don't have a travel zoom. If you want WR then get the 18-135. I have a Pentax 18-250mm, it's great when you just want to grab the camera and go, or when you have to travel light. The 18-135 is rated as even better IQ than the 18-250.

+1 big time on this.

I'm drooling over that 18-135, because of the quality and FL range. Would be just perfect for me as a one-lens solution for many situations.
