Need 2 Lenses for d500/ Nikon newb

Trying to decide between D500 and Fuji XT2. Coming from a Canon/Fuji background so am complete Nikon newb - just had to google fx vs dx a little bit ago.

I'm going to rent a D500 and the kit lens and would like recommendations on what two other prime lenses to rent. I really like the Fuji 35mm 1.4 on the XT2 - but focusing was very slow. The 56 1.2 was great but heavy and way too expensive. I'd be looking for something fast and between 20-75mm.

Am I correct in assuming I need a AF-S lens since the D500 does not have an internal focusing motor? Trying to sort through the 50mm options here is making me sleepy
