Is there anyone here who doesn't use primes?

Just wondering really ...

I've owned 35 f/1.4L, 24 f/1.4L II, and 135 f/2L ... While they produced the best images I have ever taken, I have to say ... I only ever used them in 'controlled' situations (studio setting, models are posed, lighting is constant)

In my day to day shooting, I find primes to be a hassle. Currently, I don't do much of 'controlled' shooting anymore and I just realized that I don't even have a prime in my camera bag ... Strangely enough, I don't really miss them.

Right now, I am working with ...

EF-S 10-22mm
EF-S 17-55mm
EF 70-300L

Anyone else this way? Or am I alone on this?
