You're probably not going to like my answer, but my preference for the same dilemma is 15/28/50/77 or 15/28/40/77 if space is an issue.

Hi guys I have a question I wanna ask, for a walkabout setup to shoot both casual portraits and artistic inanimate objects what lens should I add to my current collection?

I carry my DA21 and FA43 more often than not, given that these 2 sit nicely in my bag I have space for another and though I had fun with my 50/1.4 i'm not inclined to take it out due to the aperture ring becoming loose (though a 43 and a 50 in the same bag is overkill to me). I have a couple of tele primes but i'd rather not take them out unless needed (135/200mm) if space is a principle consideration with IQ coming up next.

What is a recommended focal length/lens to attribute the current 2? (Im thinking a 70mm/77mm and to pick outta these 2 is a whole new thread :P)

And by now you should have picked up that I don't use zooms
On a side note an dream perfect 7 collection to have would be a 10mm UWA, DA21mm, FA31mm, FA43mm, 55mm, Hartlei 65mm TS, FA77mm haha (super OCD must be at least 10-12mm apart)
