I agree with Marc unless you plan to add a 75mm or a 90mm lens in the near
future.  You could start with a nice dual-range 50mm Summicaron and then add
lenses as you see fit.  You will always have a use for the 50mm lens and you
won't have a lot invested.  I've owned many world class lenses and my
favorite is still my *rigid* 50mm Summicron.
