a 70-200mm zoom or 2-3 prime long lenses?

I have this question, but It is not restricted to only Canon full frame system.

Should I buy a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, or should I buy 2-3 long prime lenses (maybe 85, 135 and 180 for examples)? Then, for one specific events I can bring 1 or 2 among those 3 lenses?

I alway prefer small package. And I mostly shoot with 2 prime lenses of 35mm and 50mm. I have a 105/2DC nikon and rarely use it. But when I bring it out to the field, the results are amazing.

I have many full frame systems, Canon, Nikon, Sony. And also Leica, Fuji, Pentax film SLR. So my question is not limited to a specific branch.
