Teach me the ways of the all prime kit

I'm thinking of dumping all my FE zooms and even my 35 ART for a light all prime kit. 14/2.8 (architecture- I dropped my copy), 28/2 (landscapes/video/indoors), 45/1.8 (indoors/street/events), 135/2 MF (portraiture). I figure I can cover that 45 to 135 gap by going to crop mode on my A7R2 (I don't shoot much in that range anyway).

What are some strategies for shooting with nothing but primes? I already try and only carry no more than 2 lenses at a time but 1 is often a zoom. I'm still thinking about the 24-70/4 but I just don't like how it renders at the wide end. 24-105 is good but I just want to give primes another try.

Give me some prime wisdom
