I am a happy D700 user and would love to have the 24-70 f/2,8 but can't quite afford yet. I am currently shooting with a Tamron 28 - 75 f2.8 and am fairly satisfied. ( I also have the 70-300VR, but seldom use. Here's my situation/question. I bought the 50 f/1.8 a while ago and NEVER really used it. This past weekend, I took a few low-light shots with the 50 1.8 on the D700 and was extremely impressed. I am now thinking about picking up several fast primes instead of lusting for the 24-70. I shoot everything - but particularly like street photography and landscapes/cityscapes. Any feedback from primarily-prime users is appreciated. Additionally, if I were to go the prime route, what are some of the best lenses based on our experience? If it is easier pointing me to former posts, please provide a link.

Thanks for any and all feedback. And, again - I truly enjoying the Nikonians community and all that I've learned being a part of it.
