No one asked you what you like to take pictures of. What do you like to take pictures of? I like a 35 prime on crop. I use my 35 f/2 most often. It's a great cheap lens. I can't afford a 35L and the 28 f/1.8 is overpriced for its image quality. If you're gonna go with primes I would recommend it. If you want a lot of background blur and/or to shoot in low light you're gonna need a wide aperture, which means a prime. f/ 2.8 on a crop has never been good enough for me in low light.
The 50 f/1.8 is good and the 50 f/1.4 is a bit better. 85 f/1.8 is a great value for portrait.
I like my 10-22, but it's more of a specialty lens, so unless you really plan on taking ultra wide shots, you won't miss it. The kit lens can do pretty wide.
That's pretty much my kit. I have the cheap 55-250 for the occasion where i want a zoom. I rarely desire to use it, but it's decent and super cheap.
None of these lenses are rubbish. They aren't L, but certainly not rubbish.
