I’d seriously consider getting one that handles 1/2” shank bits, they almost always come with a 1/4” collet as well and give you so many more options. Also, a plunge router will do everything a fixed base will do, but not vice versa. A set of bits with 4-5 bits may not be a bad idea, but the larger sets will have several you’ll have little use for…I’d get them as needed, and specific to the task at hand.
