But I will always sacrifice some versatility for speed, and primes do that quite nicely.

HAHA!  I had to read that 3 times to understand what you meant.  "Speed" for me means rapidly getting shots at all kinds of different focal lengths (action sports)--I can't do that very fast with a prime.  ;-)

Agreed.
The 24-70 F/2.8 II and the 70-200 F/2.8 II are the only L glass I use on my 5D MK3 now.
I sold all my primes when I got the 24-70, it's that good :)

+1....I'm thinking about 2nd 5D III or 6D. I'm not a big fan of swapping lenses.

I love the two new zooms as I have them both too but they're no match for the fast aperture L primes when it comes to stunning bokeh not to mention the extra aperture stops.
So it mostly depends on what you're wanting to shoot.
