    It seems that the 80mm is most people's one lens kit, but when i walk around with my 60mm, i'm always tempted to bring the 150 along too.

    I know the 80mm renders (god forbid I use this word) bokeh, and the 60mm does so too, actually, when used under certain circumstances.

    Thoughts?
    A good move.

    I tend to favour a moderate wide angle as my "standard" lens (35mm for 135, 55mm for 6x4.5, 65mm for 6x7). So I wouldn't be saying goodbye to that 60mm anytime soon.

    I do often find my 50 too wide and would like a 60.

    I like the 50mm and 80mm combination for 6x6. The 60mm is too close to the 80mm lens and it just is not worth switching to the 60mm when I can just step back and get the same thing.
