In other words - I`d prefer to sell the 18-55 and 35mm f2.4 for the 16-45 than sell the 55-300.
My thoughts as well.

thanks guys for all your opinions.

i think i will sell the 55-300mm, also the 18-55mm if possible (if not i will just keep it and sell it as a package with my k-x when i get the chance to upgrade to a k5)
i really can't stand the slow focus of the 300mm
and the 35mm f2.4 is my most favorite now, i can live without 18mm or 300mm, but not the 35, it is not possible for me to sell it, plus it is a fast prime, which is a different genre than the 16-45, i need it with the high iso ability of k-x for low light.

ps: i have to donate in order to sell things on the market place omg?

I have the original unimproved 18-55 and the 16-45. After testing on my 6mp and 10mp bodies, I don't find a significant difference. Both aren't too exciting wide open, but improve when stopped down. Of course I have only one of each lens; your copies may vary.

When fully extended the construction of the 16-45 is particularly uninspiring in terms of how much the front end wobbles. However I've tested extensively and the lens doesn't perform differently with the front elements shifted to any extreme.
