well a 24-70 is a nice lens, and fast glass is always a plus. I guess you have to figure out what the usage will be? To most people a 24-70 zoom 2.8L IS fast glass, however when your comparing it to the other 2, it's not. BUT, in return you will gain the flexibility to shoot on the run with the zoom lens, not be switch lens' around all the time. Then there's the cost to own verses the cost of keeping the old glass. Only you can decide that answer.

I, personally, don't like prime lenses just for the same reason Jim explained. Granted the 1.4 would be nice, I'd opt for the zoom over the 1.4 any day. But this is just my preference.
