16-50 and 55

I have DA*16-50 and K-5 but I need DA*55 too. but I have only have MeSuper, M50.7 FA50macro Tamron 28-300 DA16-50 and K-5. I'm was thinking to exchange my DA*16-50 to DA*55 with other standard zoom lens but I really need 16-50.... --
If I exchange the 16-50 to 55, the standard zoom lens will be require forever...

Oh my...
I'm so crazy...

Sorry, I don't quite get it...

If you need the 55 1.4, why not keep both 16-50 f2.8 and 55 f1.4. You will then have a good portrait lens with the 55 f1.4 and an 'all purpose' lens with 16-50 f2.8.
