Only your own shooting style will tell you what focal lengths will work best for you.  Since you've primarily been using a zoom that gives you a wide range of focal lengths, consider reviewing your catologue to see where you tend to shoot the most, e.g., more 35-40 or more 50ish, to help you decide which lens best suits your needs.  They are all high quality so its hard to go wrong on that score (though, admitedly, there are subtle differences in renditions and, of course, application).  My trio is 15-43-70, in part because I like wide and in part because I love the 43's rendition (I have a 40 and a 50 which rarely get used).

Most processing programs like Lightroom have a way to sort by focal length.  I believe that there are other utilities that will survey EXIF data.
