I have the 20/2.8D and have owned the 20/2.8 AIS.  I also own the 17-35/2.8AFS.  The zoom is better than either of the two primes (which are slightly different, but really quite close in their performance) at 20mm.  Though the 20/2.8 is pretty good with the sun in the frame, the 17-35/2.8 is much better regarding (though not immune to) flare and ghosting.

I still have the 20/2.8D for times when the 17-35/2.8 AFS is too heavy and bulky.
