Should I pull the trigger on the DA*200MM?

Current lenes.
K100D Kit DA 18-55MM & DA 50-200MM (wifes camera bag) that I use for happy snaps sometimes

K10D Kit DA 10-17MM fisheye DA 14MM DA 16-45MM DA 40MM LTD DA 70MM LTD DA*50-135MM

Now should I sell the DA 16-45? get the lucky dip DA*16-50MM or just get the DA*200MM and keep the DA 16-45? and later on put in the DA 21MM LTD in the lineup?

I luv the DA*50-135MM but need more MM when shoting birds @ dusk low light.

No problem at all Pentaxkangaroo. Buy the 200mm and keep all the rest. You will love the extra reach of that lens. LBA problem solved and you won't regret the one that got away.

If the 135mm isn't long enough, perhaps 200mm won't cut it either. I'd suggest sacrifice 1 stop and get a 300mm f4. Upgrade to the K20d and you'll have better high iso performance, meaning the f4 will be more than adequate.
