I sold my DA*16-50/2.8 and Sigma EX 24-70/2.8. Now I'm only having one lens and that's DA*50-135/2.8. I'm considering to buy some DA primes instead of two lenses that I sold. Mostly I'm shooting weddings. Could you help with selection? May be I sell DA*50-135/2.8 too. Thanks.

First I would look at EXIF for the shots you are happy with and then get a prime or primes with similar focal length. That way you optimise on what already works for you.

If you want to go outside the 16-135 range there aren't many wider primes - DA14/2.8 is probably more suitable than the slower DA15/4 limited. Wider than that you are in 12-24 or other UWA territory.
