Need to slim down my lenses, suggestions?

Hello all,

I have overbought in a yearlong G.A.S. attack.

I shoot primarily events, some landscape, some sports, some macro, and some family portraits. At one time I made money shooting large products with my 28, but that time has passed.

I know lens choices are very personal, but what would you do and why?

Here is my "kit"

20mm 1.8g

24mm 1.8g

28mm 1.8g

35mm 1.8g

50mm 1.8g

60mm 2.8g

85mm 1.8g

105mn 2.8g

180mm 2.8d

300mm f4 pf

24-70 2.8g

24-120 f4vr



I think I can be happy with any combination of glass, however I think i would like to keep the 20mm, and the 105mm. Not big on the 50 or 60mms. Looking over my past photos I have used them all about equally with a slight edge to the 20 and 105.

Another factor is to try to keep filter sizes standardized ie: 72mm or 77mm. Any thoughts? I'm not against buying a lens to replace 2-3 if it will help me standardize.

I hace considered the new 105mm 1.4e as 105 is my favorite fov, and my macro doesn't give as much aperture as I would like.
