Have had to go back to the 24-70 on a regular DSLR for event coverage, which is not nearly as much fun, but I don't miss shots.
If I'm shooting an event, I have one camera with a good 24-70 equivalent zoom, and a second body with a fast prime, usually a 50 or 85-90 equivalent for portraiture and shots where I want really shallow depth of field. Alternatively, one body has a fast prime and the second has a 70-200 equivalent. No need to change lenses, and if you use bodies with the same sensor or even the same body, your images will match perfectly.

But as for the original question, as to whether a 27-85 f2.8 can replace a 27 and 85 with fast aperture, the answer would be maybe, depending on light situation, ISO capability of the body, and just how shallow depth of field you want.

the 90 is about the only lens i might be interested in...need to see how it feels in my hand...i love many of the images i have seen from the 10-24 but they were mostly landscapes which i have not shot in many years.

i'm actually tempted to sell all the fast primes i have and stick with the fujicron primes...everything fits into the domke f6 and is easy on the shoulder ...
