Top five budget/alternative lenses (under $600)

There was a recent post with lots of responses about listing your top five lenses regardless of price. I'm starting an alternative/budget lens top five. I am asking you to list the top five lenses you would purchase on a budget, say the maximum price is $600. Lenses you could not be without. I'll start, and these are lenses I
own or have used:

1. 24 mm f 2.8 AFD
2. 85 mm f 1.8 AFD
3. 75-150 f 3.5 series E
4. 28-105 f 3.5-4.5 AFD
5. 50 mm f 1.8 AFD

I don't own them so can't comment but maybe Tokina 12-24 and Nikon 20 mm AFD are candidates for the list.
