I wouldn't say you should 'move' but rather supplement. Use whatever takes your fancy that day, or carry both lenses around.

Personally I did the reverse. I started street pics with 50mm f1.4 (equiv. to 75mm on my NEX6), then I went to 35 f1.8  (52mm) then to 28+speed booster  f2 (still 28mm)

Having the choice of all 3 is nice & I just use what I feel some affinity for on a particular day.

With some careful shopping & if you don't mind MF you can cover a lot of options for cheap. My 3 options above cost a total of under $600 combining native & legacy options.
