A question which could stir a lot of debate. My back of the envelope guess 
would be to keep the 24mm and the 90mm, or the 35mm and the 90mm. 

The traditional combination is 35, 50, and 90. I would do that if I could.

Depends on what you are photographing. I have an M8 and I use my 24mm 
Elmarit on it almost all the time. It is a great, and with my eyes, a very 
forgiving combination.
