Since getting the 24-70 II, I haven't used the 35L...

#### Do you use primes, zooms, or both

Having the trinity for both zooms and primes is the way to go, if you can.

Zooms for versatility and convenience, and fast primes to get those magical shots.

Is there a fixed agreed-upon trinity for primes and zooms?

Zoom trinity is 16-35 II, 24-70 II and 70-200II

Prime trinity is 35, 85, 135 L lenses.

Actually, it's a matter of preference.

The classical trinity is 35 / 50 / 85.

The classical alternate trinity is 24 / 50 / 100.

But any mix-and-match of wide, normal, and telephoto that works for you is your own personal holy trinity.

Cheers,

I also vote for 35 85 and 135 for prime trinity although sigmas take the first 2 spots in mine

Ok, nice to know. I am basically there already in focal lenght, except the 24-70 II, but untill that, the 24-105 will do
