Two/Three Prime Lens Combo for Street Photography

With the latest Nikon announcements, the prime lens collection is offering a nice array of options for street photographers.

The f/1.4 with FL of 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 58mm and 85mm are quite impressive but cost more and weigh more as well.

The f/1.8 prime collection is now offering FL of 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. They cost less, are smaller and lighter, and the quality is almost at par with the f/1.4 primes.

Street photographers prefer a system that is light and discrete, but with no compromise on quality of image. The Leica M is the benchmark but for the cost of a Leica system you could buy the entire Nikon company and still have some spare change in your pocket.

I would be interested to hear what would the best 2-3 prime lens combo for both FX and DX shooters (assuming the 24mm f/1.8 reviews do not disappoint obviously).
