FA 50 1.4 or 18-135 ?

I'm using K-x with 18-55 and 50-200, plus 135 f/2.8
Should I buy 50 1.4 (300$) or 18-135 (450$) now ?
If I buy 18-135, i think i will sell all 18-55 and 50-200, am I right ?

Yes. However, due to the overlap, I would get the 50mm. It will give you a move versatile kit, IMO.

I would get the WR 18-135 if I had a K-5, but I recently got the FA50 1.4. It will give you better use with bokeh, more than 18-135.
