I find 50 a touch too long on aps-c, with 40 you will still get the same feel without having to move back. 21/40/70 is a good combo, but i would also take a look at either 35mm, the limited has a 1:1 macro but the f2.4 is a bit faster. Both are about the  same sharpness, outstanding wide open and at f4. It's also the magical focal length, not too long or too short, rather than a 40 or 50. So in your situation 21/35/70
