Are primes better than 24-70 2.8 L?

I have been shooting more with this new lens I just acquired. I am now actually disappointed. I seem to get softish-blurry detail when shooting at 2.8 at all focal lengths. I now have less than one week left to return/exchange. Are primes better? (24 2.8, 35 f2, 50 1.4/1.8, 85 1.8) or is the 35 1.4 better? Does my lens need calibrating? Does my camera need calibrating? I have less than a week to return and I saved for months to get this lens, so I am concerned.
