Your lens kit looks like mine. I've settled on the Zeiss 21, Nikon 24/1.4G and 28/1.8G, plus the Sigma 35/1.4 for the wide primes, plus the 85/1.8G and 200/2G as well for the tele primes, and the 2.8 pro zoom trio for when I need zoom flexibility. I'd like to see a new Nikon 105 and a new (and extremely good) Nikon 20 as well, but I'm probably looking hard at the Zeiss 135/2 at some point to fill the gaps. Interestingly, I have no problems manually focusing the Zeiss 21 but didn't find the Zeiss 28/2 I tried to go as well with my eyes for some reason - and since I liked the Nikon 28/1.8 better optically, that was an easy decision.
