Interesting idea. I couldn't justify a Q10 though. I wouldn't use it often enough.

After Frank's suggestion and considering how much it would cost to rent 2 lenses for a month or trying to squeeze the 16-50 out of my parents as a Christmas/birthday present, I've decided to go for the DA 15/40/70 combo. All 3 are bounds above my current lenses in IQ, and they have the benefit of being compact and great for travel. Considering the 16-50 is $1500, I could the 15/40/70 for about the same price in great used condition.

What's a good price to try to grab each of them for when I'm finally in the market for buying?

Should clarify: A good price for each in used but excellent condition (box if possible, all original accessories, etc)
