Lens(es) to use with Letus & EX1

I'm about to order the Letus Extreme to use with my EX1 and am starting from scratch with lenses. I'd love some advice on one or two primes to start with. I will be shooting mostly interviews and interior narrative pieces--will usually be lit, so I don't need the absolutely fastest lens. I often need to shoot in confined spaces, so a somewhat wide angle is preferred. I'd like to keep my budget at around $800 total, for either one great lens or two good ones. I think I've decided on the improved Nikon AI mount (feel free to challenge this though) and am looking at these at B&H. They're all new--I'm open to used but don't see much right now at B&H. I'd prefer not to spend a lot of time on eBay, but if someone wants to suggest lenses to look for there, that would be helpful too.
