50mm 1.4 or 17-50 2.8?

... Possibly a foolish question.

... Finding the 70-200 VR1 a perfect lens. It's my only lens, and might not ever use another. However, finding it a heavy enough carry around lens, and sold my 1.4 converter yesterday.

... So, I have about $400 in my pocket. Which would be more fun? A used Sigma 17-50 2.8 or a used Nikon 50mm 1.4.
