If you can do without AF, there are a lot of options for 50mm lenses that will free up some cash by selling your FA 50. I always thought the A 50mm f/1.7 was a fantastic bargain, not too hard to find for <$100. If $$$ is a big issue, I'd forego the 50mm (they're readily available when finances improve), and when 77mm is too long, shoot with the 31mm and if necessary crop to get the 50mm fov.

I'm sorry but you obviously haven't read the fine print in your manual. Every owner of an interchangeable lens camera system is required to own at least one 50mm lens whether you actually use it (and why would you?) or not.

.
I finally bought one, used. I did use it though, on 2 different days.

Well, I have to admit that after our first few exchanges I didn't thinks so but looking at your recent posts it seems you indeed are one reasonable and smart chap

Funds permitting, do get the 77 and keep the 50 to see how you like both.
I debated over the 50 vs 43 for some time before I yielded and even there the 43 is simply spectacular. I've not missed the f/1.4-f/1.9 capability in the least, particularly with the high-ISO performance of the later dSLRs - but each to their own in that regard.
