    My 50-140 turns up today, so the 60mm may be put back into a dark room somewhere. Two things it has got going for it, 1) it's very light, and 2) the bokeh is very different...

    Think the hood weighs more than the lens, bit of luck that the one from the 35 f1.4 fits, oh dear another lens I never use.

    Enjoy the 50-140, never heard a bad word about it optically

    Personally, never cared for the 10-24 and would rather have...and do have...but not for long because it's on ebay right now, 16mm f1.4.

    The 35mm is a bit of meh for me. It's neither wide enough nor long enough, so gone.

    The 60mm is possibly the most curious of Fujis lenses and one of the original triumvirate of course. I kind of like it, but next to the 56 (which I notice you don't have) I wouldn't choose it.

    I can't remember what else you said you had off hand but after being prime for the last 7 or so years, I'm going back to less bodies and a pair of zoooooooooooooooms, - the 16-55 f2.8 and the 50-140 f2.8.

    Job done for me. But dammit, I will miss that 16 and 56 when the light get's really low...

    +1, If the OP likes macro, then sell the 90 and pick up the 80. I did this recently without any regrets. I would probably let go of the 14 and/or the 10-24, but I find 16 wide enough.

    I would certainly be interested in buying the 16mm if you are serious about selling.

    Yawn..... Why do Sony users have to frequent Fuji forums? Probably because they know they made a mistake in changing...... Each to their own, get over it and move on.

    What focal lengths do you most enjoy shooting? Personally, I love (FF equivalents) 21, 35 and 85mm. 24 and 135mm are a close second. 28, 50 and 100mm are my least favorite. I never shoot them except under duress.

    The reason I switched to Fuji was that they were the only system outside Canon, Nikon and Leica (all more expensive) with fast primes in all my favorite focal lengths. I don't trust third party AF lenses. Maybe if Sony added GM primes at 21, 24, 35 and 135 then I would be more interested, but as it is Sony is a non-starter for me.

    You say you have too many lenses, . . . why? Do you have lenses you do not use? Are afraid to sell a lens because as soon as you do there will be a string of posts with amazing photo's praising how great the lens is? Happens to me every time LOL.

    You are a little heavy on the wide end. The 10-24 covers both the other two. I decided to sell my 10-24 and keep the 14 because I preferred the smaller size, but now I'm sorry I did because the 10-24 was so much more versatile.

    How many lenses would be ideal?

    Do you need three bodies? Why?

    Those are my three main primes I carry with me when I'm in the mood to carry primes instead of zooms and not need higher than 1:4 magnification. If I want to carry a fourth prime lens - the 56.
    For macro, the 80.
    Even though I have the 80, I will not give up my 90. Both lens have their purpose for me.
