Pondering a transition

from


450d, 17-50 f2.8, 50 f1.8, 70-200 f4L IS USM, 18-55 IS

$500 + $80 + $1500 ( I keep the 17-50)

to


60d, 17-50 f2.8, 50 f1.4 USM

$1400 + $500

I seem to be losing alot of glass this way. Notably a L lens.

First combo is actually more versatile for proper normal shoots. Like events and requests. But the second one allows me better quality and, well ok I think the 50mm f1.4 USM is a good one but im not sure if its worth the $500 that ppl are paying for it.

What I really want?

5dm2, 8-16mm, 24-70, 70-300 L, 35, 85, 135.

But so how, anything that I can use to round off my collection? Other than keeping the expensive 70-200?
