Some food for thought, here in the UK street prices for a couple of options, assuming an FX shooter:

Option 1 - 2.8 Trinity 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm = £4067

Option 2 - 4.0 Trinity + 1.8 Primes 16-35mm, 24-120mm, 70-200mm, 28mm, 50mm, 85mm = £3847

When looking at a whole system rather than a lens in isolation I think option 2 is likely to appeal to a lot of folk. You have high IQ in a flexible, lighter weight, less expensive and faster (1.8) setup which you can mix and match upon assignment....
