If lenses are cars, the 75/1.8 would be the Posrche Boxster, the 35-100/2.8 would the Toyota 4 Runner 4x4. Both are great vehicles. Boxster is one of the best in its class. Fun to drive, great performance. But i's not a 4-season or every day vehicle. The 4runner on the other hand, not as fast nor as fun, but it can handle snow, rain, or summer heat of 100° F. It can take kids to the games. Have plenty of cargo space for grocery shopping, haul stuffs from home depot, or take the whole family on a long distance trip...  It can do all those and does very well.

Forget about the Boxster and 4Runner, I can't even afford one of those. But I do have both 75/1.8 and the 35-100/2.8. If I have to choose only one. Guess what I would pick?
