...I have been wanting to acquire the 35L and at the moment, i am deciding if i should let my 70-200 2.8 IS go for it...
When i moved to an FF format from an APS-C format, I also moved from a zoom only lens line up (11-16 f2.8,17-55 f2.8 IS,70-200 f2.8 IS) to a prime only lens line up. After 2 months of using primes only, my girlfriend told me that i should get a zoom lens so that she's more comfortable with using the 5Dii. So in the end, she bought me a 24-70L. To make a long story short, the 24-70L stayed mostly in my storm case because of it's weight, size, and aperture. My girlfriend was going to take the 5D home with a 24-70 mounted to it but after she realized that it's heavy, she opted out. Eventually, it lead to a point that i sold it to save up for the amazing 24LII.
If you are a stickler for bokeh, color, and increased sharpness, then I'm sure you can make it work. Having primes as your only lenses to go to, you'll be forced into a different way of shooting with your feet.
In addition, you'll also, be more invisible to your subjects, have the ability to shoot movement in lower amounts of light, and you will carry a lighter load as your back will thank you for it later down the road in life.
