The O-ME53 is a sure buy, I just haven't come around to get it yet.
I have no problem MFing with the 50/1.7 or the 135/2.8, so I don't think I need a split prism - and I don't want to have one in the center of my view finder when I'm using AF-lenses.
Get the canon ees type screen it is a joy to use.

Thanks, everyone!

I found a F70-210/4-5.6 for 40/$52 and a Tokina-build Revuenon 300/5.6 for 15/$19, so with those and my 2x TC (P/KA) I've got the tele-range covered. I'm still lacking a fast short tele/portrait lens but the options aren't cheap (DA70, FA77, M85/2, Samyang 85/1.4), so my A50/1.7 will have to do for now... anyway, thanks for the advice, I'm quite pleased with the 70-210. The only downside is that there's a couple of now-obsolete MF-glass to get rid of (the 135/2.8 and two 70-210s).

Look around for a K/M/A 100f4 Macro. I carry my DFA100WR everywhere and love the focal length and macro versatility.
