20mm f/1.8 + 35mm f/1.8 OR wide zoom

Always been a fan of primes, had a 10-24mm on DX but saw 20mm release and instantly bought when received my first FX body D750.

Current set up

20mm 1.8G + 50mm 1.4G + 85mm 1.8G

Preferred set up

20mm 1.8G + 35mm 1.8G + 85mm 1.8G

(sell the 50mm 1.4G, cash value more important, buy 1.8G in future)


16-35mm 4G ED VR + 85mm 1.8G

17-35mm 2.8D IF-ED + 85mm 1.8G

(sell 20mm and 50mm 1.4G, buy 50mm 1.8G in future)

What are peoples general thoughts / experiences with the lenses? I want a 35mm lens as a 'walk around lens' currently the 20mm is too wide and 50mm too close. So the wide zoom would cover that range. I do like low light handheld shots with a bit of grain but the VR may cope with this? Landscape, architecture, interior design, portraits and street photography will be the subject.

Also I can't remember from owning the 10-24 on DX but how much wider is 16mm and 17mm than 20mm on FX?
