Don't rule out the DA35/2.8 Macro Limited, either. Probably the most versatile lens ever made, in my opinion.
I agree. This is my most used lens, very, very versatile.

I see an eBay Buy-It-Now sale for a 50 mm f/1.7 for $109, free shipping, from a highly rated seller. That is well within your budget.
The regular KEH price for the M50/1.7 is $89 in EX condition - there's no good reason to ever pay more than that, at least in the US. Their BGN rated copies sell for $49, and it's usually as good as or better than most of what is sold as "like new" from most Ebay sellers. It can certainly be had for less too, with just a little patience, in condition just as good.
