depends on what I'm shooting, but for personal work I felt that way about my 24L on FF for a long time (2 years+). I'd put just that lens on and go anywhere and make it work. If it works for you it works for you, don't let the collectors tell you otherwise.
If you did add one lens to that though, I'd go with just the 85 at first. Seems like the 35/85 combo works very well and 50 is kinda too similar to both?
Also, which 24 do you have? I just sold my 24L today and I'm 24LII shopping (used)...
I have the mark1. If I decided to pick up other lenses, I'll definitely get the 85. I've had the 50 1.4 before, and honestly wan't that big of a fan of the FL, but I figure if I have a bunch of money sitting around from selling the 24L that i might as well give it another try...

You must have a very narrow selection of things you like to shoot if all you want to use is a 35mm on a FF camera...
You might want to look at broadening your photographic horizons. If you shoot one specific type of subject matter all the time, it's very easy to get stuck in a creative rut.
I wouldn't say I have a very narrow selection, I dabble with a little bit of everything but my passion is with portraits, so thats what I focus on. Like madhatter said, you don't have to do everything...I don't get any joy out of shooting flowers...
And even when I do other things I always seem to use the 35L no matter what other lenses I have in my bag. I've been trying to break that "habit" for awhile now, but I think its time I just start to embrace it

I have seen you work in the 35L archives (obviously) and the shots look great. You have a specific style and the 35L seems to fit this style. If you are happy with that, why not?
Have you tried the 85L?
The 85L is the one/only lens that I have not tried, but REALLY want to try. Unfortunately, I don't see myself being able to afford the extra $700+ it would cost me to get one
NADA...sold off my gear and bought a motorcycle. I might be back shooting someday...
