When I first got back in photography, I went to the equipment envy thing 
got just about all focal length from 18mm to 200mm. Then I realize really I 
only use 3 :-) Nevertheless, the OM Zuiko have some really magical 
properties so I kept most of them. Then I got into Leica and I rapidly 
found out that, well, Leica is better than CV :-) Those damned fast glass 
is additive. However, I found that, again, I really only use 2 most of the 
time. 35 and 50. It is actually so much easier to move back and forth then 
thinking about swapping lens. I thought the Tri-Elmar would give me the 
flexibility back but found that most of the time I use either the 35 or 50 
:-) I guess the point is, would you really miss those two lenses? Even if 
so, if you were to switch to Canon dSLR, then all seven of your Leica 
lenses become useless! :-)
