Re: Fast primes vs good zooms

F2.8 zooms are very good and versatile. F5.6 zooms can drag you down into shutter speeds or ISO's you don't want. F1.2 to f1.8 primes can give you a different looking shot due to background separation and allow less noise in low light. At least one fast prime like the 15mm f1.7 can be very useful to complement zooms.
