Leicaflex SL...lens recommendations

I've just picked up a Leicaflex SL in great cosmetic and working condition which I got in an auction for a really good price. But it's the camera only without a lens.

I confess that I'm not a Leica enthusiast and have no plan to start buying a whole group of lenses for it. It's just one of a large and expanding collection of film cameras.

But can someone advise me what would be the best 35mm or 50mm lens to look out for.

Also I'd consider a non Leica lens for it if there are ones that are cheaper but comparable in quality. But I only want an R mount and none that need any adapters.

Thanks for any help.
