The 200L 2.8 is such a cool little lens. It's a shame more people don't use it. I really wanted to get one, but given my lenses at the time, a 70-200 was just more practical for what I shoot. I still think about picking one up every now and then to complement my f/4 zoom.

Amen to that! The 200mm 2.8 is one outstanding lens. I like the 3 choices as well. I have a similar set up with the 200mm 2.8, except I have the 35mm f/2 and both Canon 100mm lenses. Having the Zeiss and the 35L with the 200mm black beauty would be one hell of a trio.

I just sold my 50 because it was little long indoors (on crop) and am replacing with 35.

Mine will be 35/85/100/135.

Keeping a 100 because I like macro. Might add something wider and/or something longer down the road if I need it.

I have no regrets with my primes. For me, the FL spread is just right. Really like the 135l. It's one lens I try to use more than the situation warrants.

I find if there's a fifty, can't go wrong with 28/50/100 or 135

The 35, 50, 135 are three excellent lenses. If only using three lenses the 35, 85, and 135 are a great set with an even 50mm progression. If you're using a crop body the 24, 50, 135 might make more sense however.

i consider the 35mm and 50mm to be to close for street photography (though those would be 2 out of 3 prime lenses i would take with me to weddings )

It all depends on YOUR style. When out with primes only I use 30-85-135 on a crop and it works great for me. If I know I am going to need something wide I take the 10-22 instead of the 135, but that is a different bag for a different purpose.

Obviously it's different for different people, but the perfect FF trio for me is 28, 50, 85 - really because, over the years, they're the ones I most naturally "see" when I'm waking around.
