How about both: 35 f2 and 50 1.8

Both the 35 f2 and 50 1.8 are excellent on FX (despite some reviews to the contrary), are much smaller and much less expensive than the 35mm 1.4.

Once you make up your mind, you can upgrade to 1.4, but for now, I suggest you get them both. I am sure that you won't be disappointed.
