    Depends on your shooting style. What do you shoot and why do you want to shoot only primes?

    You might have tried a lemon. I tried a 28 f/1.8 on a 5DII body and was blown away by the resolving power, even wide open. Wide angle meets shallow DOF - it's just surreal.

    Maybe you try renting such a lens at first. Sure, it's helpful to get comments here but nothing beats your own experience. The small amount spend for rental is worth it. Maybe your conclusion will be completely different afterwards?

    It might be a lemon but tried other copies also similar.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    the 3rd logical choice would be a wide prime. 35/2 from the looks from it, since you're looking at the budget end of things.

    the Canon 35/2 is sharp, wayyyy sharper then even some top end zoom Ls

    I'd have to agree here. For its price point (and if the focal length works for the TS), it's really the choice that's second to none.
