I used the 24mm F2.8 for a while. The sharpness isn't amazing, but the imperfections of the lens design make photos pretty interesting.

For conventions, I've been using:
24mm F1.4 (Full length shots, environmental shots incorporating a lot of background)
50mm F1.4 (Light, versatile)
50mm F1.2 (Interesting old glass/effect)
70-200mm F2.8 (Simplifying backgrounds, compression)

Same here, primes are a PITA but it's worth the trouble.

I really want to try the 85mm! It seems a little redundant for me, but I think it should be pretty awesome to use.
