Trading 24CZ and T32 for the new 16-55 2.8 makes sense?
3

Seriously considering this, also depending on how much I can get from those two primes (anyone knows how much I can get for those two lenses in good condition?).  I also have some credits with a local camera shop so I'm tempting to make the trade (I don't mind paying a couple hundred dollars to cover the difference).

The 16-55 will give me a lot more versatility -- I definitely want to explore the wider perspective at around 16.  Going from 1.8 to 2.8 is not a huge deal to me as I find most of my shots these days are at least around 2.8 anyway.  The zoom also allows me to carry less lens and reduce frequencies of changing lenses.  The zoom plus the 85mm would pretty much cover all my needs.

The question is will I ever miss those two primes?
