Have you identified any real limitation on the performance envelope of the zoom that would be solved by the prime? If not, you've probably answered your own question.

The limitation is that all the photos from the zoom lens look ok but not great. They have less sharpness, contrast and depth of field compared to the 35mm and 50mm primes that I have used. Those primes make everything "pop" even at more closed apertures.

However I haven't tested the 16mm f2.8 and I don't know if it'll be the same case.
