Nine of the above. I'd get the Sigma 30/1.4. My travel kit is my 18-135 and the Sima 30. They use the same filters, the fast 30 is great indoors, it's super sharp.

While I personally would go for the primes, I think the correct answer needs more information. If you are weight and size restricted, a narrow range zoom will often have better image quality than a larger range zoom. The F35-70 is often referred to as "a bag of primes", and is probably my second favorite lens after my 18-135. I have very good 28 and 50 primes, and love to use them. But when I have to pack down and get choosy about what to carry, and I am not exactly sure of my subjects, the 35-70 often wins.
