It depends on sensor size. You need something wider than 40mm for APS-C.

40mm is pretty close to 35mm, but I don't think that I'd need another must-have prime between 40mm and 100mm for the trinity, which is 35~50 / 70~100 / 135~200.
FF + primes !

I would want something wider. Problem is, Canon has not a single really good Non-L prime wideangle lens, except the new 24/2.8 IS and 28/2.8 IS. And even these two expensive beasts aber not better IQ-wise than the new 24-70 II.

That's why I often take along my 17-55 plus 100/2.0 ...

I'd consider the Sigma 28 1.8 to complete the

It is hellofva lot sharper center and corner wise than the Canon counterpart and built a lot better as well but the back/front focusing hassles and sending it back funtimes are not something I look forward to. If I knew I would get a good copy then it would be a no brainer.
