About to buy Nikon DF with only 1 len to start with, which should it be?

hi all,

I currently have Fuji XT1 with 14mm, 35mm, 56mm, 18-55mm and 55-200mm. I am quite happy with the set up and quality of lens and camera. but sometimes i still miss the auto focus performance of FF dslr.

I also own canon 5dmk2 with 16-35mm, 50 1.4, and i think there is one len which i dont remember.

I havent used 5d in a longest time and i am planning to sell this camera and whatever lens i have for Nikon df and lens. The reason for this is i want a lightweight camera that can autofocus faster than the XT1. I like taking photos of landscape, architecture, portrait, my son, animals, and product shots. here is the link to my flickr


I am quite new to these Nikon lens and system.  I did look into the DF review and its lens.  and i would like some recommendation from real life use.  I think DF will be my travel camera along with my xt1 with 56mm or my sole travel camera.  So i dont want to buy any 85mm lens yet since it would be the same range. These are my questions:

1 Considering i have all the range covered on my fuji system, should i start with either 35 or 50mm prime?  which one of these are more versatile in travel use?

2 what would be the lens that most compliment DF?  i mean what lens that would ease me into the Nikon DF as i understand that this camera is a little hard to get used to.

That would be all and thank you in advance for any anwers or questions.
