Option 1: Zeiss 21 mm f/2.8, 28 mm f/2, 135 mm f/2

I already have the Zeiss 28 mm f/2, I also have the Zeiss 18 mm f/3.5 but would buy the 21 mm f/2.8 instead today (the 18 mm was released a year earlier and was the only option available back then). I also have the Nikon 105 mm f/2 which is lovely for portraits but can't handle any high contrast scene, very noticeable veiling flare. While no direct replacement (most importantly because it doesn't have autofocus), the optical performance of the Zeiss 135 mm f/2 is just breathtaking, one of the very few fast lenses with basically perfect colour correction, the bane of digital sensors.

I would miss my 50 mm f/1.4 for indoor uses in bad light. Including it would cover about 98% of all the photos I take.
