22mm f2 on the M
40mm f2.8 on the M or 7D
60mm or 100mm macro on the M or 7D
This is assuming I still get to use an 18-35mm 1.8, the 11-16 f2.8 and my 70-200 II on the 7D when desired

You would pick the 18-35/1.8 and the 35/2 IS???
Yea it does seem a bit odd. For indoor non-portrait use the the 35 IS USM is awesome the 18-35 cant match it for this use. The IS on an F2 opens a whole world of new things you can do. On the other hand for indoor portrait/event use the 18-35 is awesome it covers 18 for the wide multi person and 35 std with or without flash. I use it for events where the distance to the subject can be be very limited. Two different tools for two different jobs.

A little too long on the wide end for me. I'd start with a 100mm Macro, then 300 and 600.

Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 - general purpose lens
Sigma 50 f/1.4 (non-ART) - portrait lens
Canon 85 f/1.8 - outdoor portrait lens
$799 + $399 + $419 = $1617 (or $1697 with Canon 17-55 IS)
I shoot general walkabout stuff, kids over the park, on the beach, few car events/meets etc etc & the odd landscape/sunset.

My first three lenses, back in my film days (late 60's), were 28/2.8, 58/1.7, and 135/3.5, all manual focus. Their crop-factor equivalents are 18mm, 35mm, and 85mm. However, now I expect longer and wider. So, if all zoom lenses magically disappeared from the universe, my 3-prime lens kit would probably be:
Canon 80D, 60D, Canon 10-22EFs, 15-85EFS IS, Sigma 18-300, Canon 60mm EFs Macro, Rokinon 8mm fisheye, 550EX flash, Olympus TG2 underwater P&S

Although I agree it's much easier on FF. Like mentioned not alot of good sub F2 options below 30mm. The canon 24 would be it but thats only 38mm equiv.
I would highly recommend your zoom setup for a crop. Absolutely!

Answering this question is incredibly difficult for me! I think that if I were forced to shoot only with crop sensors, and I could only have only 3 lenses, and they all had to be primes, I would probably choose:
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
Three primes on apcs? I couldn't do it. The 14L is way too expensive. Nothing else is wide enough. I guess I'd go 17-40, 35 IS (or 50 1.4), 100 2. Gee, that's what I use on my 6D!

I would get as much variety as possible.
