January reshuffle

So by Xmas 09 I thought this will be my line up for 2010:

Left to right, back to front:
Tamron 70-300 - my wife's primary lens
Sigma 105 Macro - my wife's macro lens (might be up for sale soon)
Sigma 10-20 - UWA
FA135 - my longest lens
FA31ltd - main normal lens
K55/1.8 - portrait lens
F50/1.7 - general purpose short tele/portrait lens
DA40ltf - main to go lens, knockabout lens and back up normal lens

That picture was taken on 14/12/2010.
What did I know
I got great deal on FA43ltd and good deal on K24/2.8. I shipped F50 today and should be taking DA40 to seller tomorrow, and as I mentioned the Sigma macro might be going soon too.
So that leaves me with:
10-20, and then all SMC primes at 24, 31, 43, 55 and 135.
Now I only need 85 (either M f2 or K f1.8) or 77ltd to complete my ideal line up. And I'd be really happy if I could grab K15/3.5 to replace the Sigma. And that would perhaps be it!
What do you think?

Get the 77, get the 77!!!!
The 43 and 77 were fighting each other so much that I had to get another body to appease both.
Swap the Tamron for the DA 55-300 and you'll get serious brownie points from the Mrs. Are you thinking of replacing the Sigma macro for the new Pentax DFA100?
Lovely lineup of lenses you've got though especially the one in the middle....

Thanks Robbie,

I'm not planing to get the new DFA. My wife found out that she likes more close ups, than proper macro, and she wants to sell the sigma to get some extra cash. I've read just praises about the DA55-300 but it doesn't do close ups, and anyway, my wife really likes her tamron. Though now I suspect that she will like FA135 after she tries it on her kind of stuff this spring/summer.
All of this was triggered when I purchased the K55 from you, so thanks
As far as 77 goes, I'd love to but I think I'll have to save some serious cash for it. Problem is though, that I'm more of a wide(ish) shooter, so I more expect it to be fight between 10-20/24/31. And now I'm seriously thinking of replacing the 10-20 with either 14 or 15...
we'll see

I loved the DA40 so 43 it's going to have some big boots to fill...
