    I would bring 50mm f/1.8

    at least if it breaks, not so heart pain but depends on shooting what and if the reward is worth the risk.

    why nobody consider a 45 or 47 mm real standard lens?

    it is the best if there is only one choice

    Currently my AFD 20mm f/2.8.

    Extremely sharp on my D700, makes my setup as light as a feather, reminds me of my enjoyable point and shoot days but with the quality of a pro DSLR.

    I can even shoot with only my right hand....

    Truly a match made in heaven!

    Here's a writeup and some samples of my D700 and Nikkor 20mm AF-D f/2.8 combination:-
