I'm wary of stepping into this conversation. Why so heated? Photographers in different situations have different needs -- end-of. Better to share our different experiences and learn from them.

My vote goes to the primes. I note that the OP has built a terrific set of primes, so maybe that is where he has been for a long time, and going to a zoom is quite a change in mindset.

Aside from the aperture and weight considerations, I like primes because my habit is to pre-visualise a shot and I cannot do that so easily with a zoom. I also just like something about the handling, the balance, and even the constraint of a single focal length. These days I can crop to 2x with modern sensors and still fill a 4K screen with quality pixels, not that I do that very often, but I don't find a 2.5x zoom significantly better for framing.

But that's just me and how I have become comfortable as a shooter over many, many years.
