Lens for nighttime inner city photography

I'm thinking of getting a lens for sometime nighttime inner city photography -- and I'm thinking a 50mm f1.4/1.8 would probably be my best option (although, I'm certainly open to opinions -- 24, 35, and 85 all seem tempting in their own way). I'm not too sure if I'll end up getting into it, so I would prefer to stay on the cheaper side (hence no 50 1.8s), and am also definitely considering a used from the likes of B&H (/anywhere with a good return policy).

I'm also thinking that I'll probably want AF since I don't know how consistent I would be at focusing manually, although, AF at night might not be stellar either...

I'd probably also bring along my 24-70 f/4s for anything that requires wider/closer.

I'm currently leaning towards a 50 1.8G.
