Is my glass good enough?

In another thread, I asked about users' impressions and experiences upgrading from K-5 to K-3. The responses were great, and I thank everyone who answered,

One poster suggested I get good glass before upgrading. So here is the glass I've got. (By the way I am not boasting. I realize all these lenses are basically run of the mill. But is any of it worthy of use with a K-3?

DA 16-45 f/4
DA 18-55 WR
DA 18-135 WR
FA 28-105 PZ
FA 28-200
DA 35 f/2.4
F 35-70
DA 50-200 WR
M 50 f/1.7
M 50 f/2.0
DA 55-300
M42 55 f/2.0
Tamron 80-210
Tamron 100-300

Mostly junk, right? It's okay. I know these are the lesser lenses. I've been looking at the DA 15 prime, the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4, and the jack of all trades Sigma 18-250, even though O expect it's lame and a waste of money all things considered.

What's in a good collection? Is it db to be frugal?

Thanks!
