There is the FA*24 f2 that you are missing, and I mean that if you don't have it, you are MISSING IT. Also, there are the Zeiss and Voigtlander manual focus lenses which you have somehow avoided, why I can't figure out. Man, you need to get serious with your lens buying addiction. You're starting to sound like a quitter! lol!!!
Saw it Japan when they came out and balked at the plastic enclosure.

35 Ltd rocks but I get more satisfaction out of my Voigtlanders than anything else these days.

I'd say you're missing a macro lens, like the dfa 100
Had the Kiron 105 and want a Sigma 180/150. I guess the '100 would suffice.

Since you're looking at primes only you don't realize you need a DA10-17 or Sigma 8-16.
+1. Go get the 10-17 fisheye and have fun. I purchased mine recently and used it for a few 'creative' images when I shot a sporting event. Those images drew more positive comments than just about any other shot I captured.

I think your missing something at the long end; something like And next the gap between 1200 and 300/420 is a bit big so one of the many 600s (A* / F* / FA*)

Yet another vote for the dfa 100. Superb lens with beautiful bokeh, and it serves me well for some telephoto landscape shots on rainy days. It's pretty much shelved my DA 35 macro and the DFA has a lovely rendering for humanoids and four legged amigos (not forgetting it's also full frame compatible if one comes about).
