Can you please post a sample of both of them at f/2?

Here's a comparison that can be conducted as a thought experiment:

Both at f/2.8, IOS turned on with the zoom, shutter speed for both at 1/15 sec, hand held.

Hands down, zoom wins!

From an absolutist perspective it is likely (not certain) that the prime will have some discernible (when PixelPeeped) advantages to the zoom. The tests that are starting to show up on the web indicate that the zoom is very good. With regards to flexibility, minimized kit, slow shutter speeds with IOS, it seems like the zoom has a lot going for it.

I completely agree Framus.
