I hated my 50/1.8 on film, and I would hate that on digital.

Were there problems with your particular 50/1.8, just a focal length you didn't care for, or some other issue?  I loved the 50mm f/1.9 Xenon, 55mm f/2.0 Takumar, and 50mm f/1.4 Planar lenses that I used on film cameras, as well as the 30mm f/1.4 Sigma (51mm equivalent) I used on a Sigma SD14.  I could very happily take all my pictures with just a reasonably fast normal lens.
