The main reason to get a f2 or less prime is to get more light than a zoom lens would.

Wouldn't that cause over-exposure, every time?

not every time as some places are really dark and you really cant overexpose them.

so if you run in to situations where more light is preferred get a fast prime.

I could have used a fast prime yesterday, but not for my whole day.

I guess I know what you meant, but...
