Lens line up opinions sought
After a pretty massive sell-off (Leica M9 and lenses), and purchase of a D800E, I am in the process of reevaluating my lens lineup, and making some additions/deletions.
Posting this request for opinions here and on a couple other forums to get the best range of opinions I can.
I shoot mainly portraiture/nudes and urban landscapes.
I am also essentially a shallow depth of field and ultra wide junkie. My two most used lenses and the 85mm f1.4G and the 14-24mm @14mm.
Current lens lineup is:
100 f2 Zeiss Macro Planar
After some other spending, I have about $3500.00 (US) to work with, and I am considering two options:
1. Pick up a 58mm f1.2 Noct
2. Also sell the 14-24mm, and replace it with the forthcoming Zeiss 15mm f2.8 and either the Zeiss 21mm, Zeiss 25mm, or Nikon 24mm f1.4.
I have the feeling the Noct will be frustrating to nail focus with, as the type of work I would use it for precludes live view.

ANY thoughts/suggestions appreciated!
