if you?re not in a panic for money, just make the decision when you go out 
to take photos

leave the ones not chosen in a bag in the car at home or in the car

otherwise, keep the 35 summi for some speed, the 90 for some reach, sell the 
others for a Tri-Elmar for your 3-in-1 walking around lens (which I think is 
almost perfect for the M8)
