I'm the guy who always says proceed slowly. Maybe not buy more than one lens at a time. But, you know best for you.

if budget allows, possibly consider the 15-85? I had the tammy and switched. When I looked at my shots, the wide open ones were always near the 50mm end. wide angle was always stopped down. so I hung on to my nifty fifty for a time, picked up the 15-85 and never looked back. Not saying that that's the path you should take, but I remember asking some similar ?'s myself

I prefer the Sigma 30 for crop use. But the Tamron 17-50 non-vc is great.

the 50 1.4 is really nice. just make sure you get a hood and use it all the time.

it really depends on what you like to shoot. I'd suggest going through your library and see what focal length you tend to "go to".
