For general indoors use, the 16-35 would be very good. What you find is that you run out of room to back up when taking photos indoors (plus you've got the stabilization). I would also reconsider the 24-70; an excellent lens, and the flexibility of a zoom. Primes have their place, but for general purpose, I enjoy zooms a whole lot more. As for 50mm, I find that to be the worlds most boring focal length; I almost never use it.

My recommendation is first to get a general purpose zoom. Get specialty lenses later.

I just keep reading that zooms are never as sharp as the primes. That's why the pro's usually shoot portraits with primes.

I wouldn't mind having the 24-70 though but I would still want another one for landscapes.
