Default Prime Lenses in the Parks?

Have any photographers here used prime lenses in the parks? If so, which focal lengths did you use and why?

I'm seriously considering giving that a try - at last at the wide and standard ends. I think I'll still want my 50-210 zoom for AK because of the animals, and various facial expressions for performances.

I'm likely to get the Sigma trio of 16/1.4, 30/1.4, and 56/1.4 for my a6500. That gives me effectively 24mm, 45mm and 85mm. I'm thinking the 16 (24) might be most useful followed by 30 (45) considering shots I've taken.

Goal for the primes is better glass, better low-light, and better bokeh for the focal length.

I currently have the Zeiss 16-70/f4 (24-105 as my walkaround, and I tend to shoot at 16-20 (24 - 30). I also have the 50-210 (85 - 315), which I'll keep bringing for the odd telephoto needs.
