Which would you keep / sell?

After using this kit for the last few weeks, and with an unexpected expense on the horizon... I have decided to part with at least one of my Prime limited lenses... .

SO my question too all of you is which lense would you keep?
DA 70mm limited
DA 21mm Limited

Of course this questions is entirely subjective and will depend alot of ones shooting preferences, but your personal views are what I am looking for.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the remainder of the Kit will consist of a:

K100d SUper
da 55 - 300mm
da 16 - 45mm
fa 50mm 2.8 macro

Thanks for the input!

DA21 is great for snap.
DA70 is OK for Portrait, but prefer 77.
If I were you, sell 70 and buy 77 in the future

It is certainly a possibility that in the future I would be able to pick up a 77mm.. and with two trips coming up perhaps the 21mm will be better suited for the landscapes

16-45 is better for trip, I think.
21 is the best for snap (during the trip maybe).

Well perhaps both are expendable, as I don't snap around too much, but rather like to set up shots.... hmmmm

I'd keep the 70.
IMHO 16-45 is better lens than 55-300 so I'd kepp the longer one of the ltds to "equal" the situation. I'd love to have 70mm pancake....

lol,
I kinda figured this might turn into a "you should sell this to me"
rather than a, which one I should keep.
Keep an eye on the marketplace in the next few days
