I'd buy one good prime and take that with the rest of my lenses on an extended $9k photo vacation.

rather shoot interesting places with cheap lens than shooting your yard with ultraexpensive glass
Great photographers like Weegee, Eugene Atget and Josef Sudek were quite content to work their hometowns.
Better to take deep photographs of what you know than take tourist snapshots of places you don't.

They surely were (although i was never fond of Sudek's work), but probably nobody here is in the same class as they were. Btw. lets not forget Sudek spent half of his life in communism, so even if he would like to go somewhere he would not be allowed to. Neverthelles I still think that spending 10 000 on lenses is waste of money, when you can spend less and use rest of money for something more meaningfull, for example travelling.

2 each any NIB SMCP (K) lens I come across until I run out of money,.
Repeat next year.
Until I own a user and a museum copy of every K lens. That has been my Lottery fantasy since 1977. Really.

Real answer - three FA Limiteds, FA*28~70/2.8, FA*80~200/2.8, MZ-s. No wait for FF.
this is my answer I'd add the FA 24 and maybe the FA85 as well to this list. the change I'd use to take a trip somewhere and actually use the gear instead of talking about it

Almost anybody putting some lenses on the list included some FA glass - lenses that are not available in new anymore. Pentax may want to fill several gaps here!
