That will give you the answer of what primes you'll want to look into. If, for instance, you have very few or no photos taken at 35mm why get a prime of that length?

This is a common suggestion helping to decide on primes, and I've used it in the past. However, using primes and using zooms can be a completely different experience, the reason being is that you have to use your feet to help compose the shot.

However, if the majority of your photos are almost always wide angle then the choice is easy buy something even wider. which would suggest a 20mm lens as its difficult to step back over a cliff or through a brick wall.

Please don't quote long posts, it just fills up the forum with repetitive information. Just replying to the poster or selectively quoting will make it all easier to read.
