I concur. Sold our 24-70L to get the 35L, which wife was initially hesitant about. Six months later, we've never regretted it once. The 35L has become the default lens for us.
I have been thinking of going the same route. Use 70-200 for range, and shoot everything else with 50/35. I am on a crop sensor though, so not as much fun but the 50/1.4 is just razor sharp at ~F2.8. From what I have read 70-200 is even better. Which is great but I haven't read about any lens that's consistently sharp on the wide end.
