Unless you must have primes, I'd recommend the 24-105 F/4 lens as a general purpose "walk about" lens for the 5D series.

Agree.  No need to label it for the 5D-series - any 35mm SLR.  The only time I can see casual use with a prime under 300mm would be for indoor low light such as 50mm or 100mm for better focusing since they are wide aperture.  Other times it should be a zoom because what will happen is you'll end up having to crop a lot basically simulating have a zoom lens.

Using prime lenses for business/paid shoots is more appropriate since you are often setting up shots specifially for the lens and result you want versus shooting snapshots.
