You ask for C&C, then comment on everyone's criticism...
I wouldn't sweat it. I learned a lot from others & my own experience, and tried to pass along my experience.
The OP asked for CCs, people tried to help, whether or not he wants to listen really doesn't matter. I don't think he was being impolite or anything.

They're not flat or snapshotty on my screen. I liked the set but then I'm a big 16-35 fan for people as well.
Not everything has to be 85mm wide open or it's wrong.
You are right, and I agree. Wide angle when used properly is nice for people & landscape, but using the wide end for close-ups, it distorts too much, hence my recommendation to use longer lens.
I didn't say it was wrong to shoot wide angle, just wrong for the purpose and I didn't say everything has to be 85 widest either, that might work for you, but I always carry a wide & a tele.
