I am happy with my 25 and 85 primes, though a 50 would be nice sometimes. I have loved the 24/25 focal length in 35 for a long time. It has the same vibe for me as 58/60 in 6x7 and 240/250 in 8x10 (120 in 4x5). Very useful (to me) FL. It will one day pull your favored body parts out of the fire.
I am not yet as familiar with the 85 but I am really quickly warming to it. It has enough "nose compression" to be flattering in most snap shot or street situations and still be short enough for some intimacy. If I were shooting portraits in a more formal sense, I would probably prefer a 105.
