While I own both, zoom lenses and primes, I use zoom mostly - Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 I have a sharp copy, and results are to my satisfaction even wide open at f2.8 I find this lens very convenient for every day use and it stays on K10D 90% of the time.

Primes - well, as Albert said, macro indeed, sometimes for small clubs/concerts I use FA 50mm f1.4 if the lighting is very poor, the only other prime I use (if you can call it that) is 50mm lensbaby 2.0 f2, fun lens for days when you just want something different. I still own 135mm f2.8 smc, and actually find this length very comfortable for portraits, but somehow most are still shot with same Tamron zoom lens.

For me, a good quality, sharp copy zoom is much more convinient than changing lenses all the time as I did with primes, and less dust introduction. Just my $0.2 :)
