..Go with a 50mm f1.8 used for $100 if you are going to go cheap on the glass. That lens is the best bang for the buck and still a decent quality piece of glass

.

And consider adding to the 50:

85 1.8D ($300 used)
105 2.5 AIS ($120 used, MF)
180 2.8 ED AF ($400 - $600 used)
300 f4 AF ($400 - $600 used for pre-AFS version)

Even:

20 2.8D ($250 - $350 used)
Tamron 28-75 2.8 ($250 - $350 used)
Sigma 100-300 f4 HSM ($1400 or so new, don't know used)
