I'd go with 2 or 3. If you plan on using your beige bag more because it's already a jumbo, maybe go with the medium, but I have a vintage jumbo classic with gh and absolutely love it! (even though it's kind of big for my height :P)

I'd go for the vintage black jumbo... you wouldn't be losing any capacity that you are used to in the beige jumbo...

I'll go with the reissue since you already have a classic. Plus the size of the 226 is perfect if you're not carrying too much.

Oh, those are all great choices! I don't think you can go wrong with either one. Personally, I'd pick #1 (reissue) because I think the classic flaps & reissues are quintessential Chanel bags. Every girl must have one in her wardrobe.

reissue! love the distressed calfskin and it will give you some diversity since you already have a classic

I LOVE the distressed leather on the reissue and would totally pick that over lambskin any day it would also be a great second Chanel since your other bag is a classic. However, if I did buy a lambskin bag it would definitely be a vintage one because I feel as though that leather is more durable than current leather...just my thoughts...
