Different sizes for different tasks.

Smoothing? #4-1/2, #4, or #3. Not a fan of LA bench planes.

I use a bandsaw a good bit so I’d say get a vintage #4 and keep most of the bandsaw budget intact.

On the topic of LN. They make wonderful stuff. Have their chisels and planes. I don’t recommend jumping right into them though. I think fettling is a damn good skill to have.
