My curveball set is here. What I actually have and use rather than my dream set. It has the advantage that I bought the lot for less than £500, they are all great lenses and they fit in my coat pockets. They are all a bit worn, so I protect the glass but otherwise they can take fairly rough handling.

Nikkor 28mm f2 AI - wide but non distorting, fast enough for some bokeh, good close focus

Nikkor 50mm f1.2 AI - super fast, and useable at f1.2

Nikkor 105 f2.5 AIS - all time classic portrait lens, add some tubes for good close up use.

Maybe classic Zeiss primes would be better and not much more more bulky, but a lot more expensive.
