If you have the bankroll for it you should always go for the max buy-in and top off whenever necessary, so you can maximize your profit on good hands and avoid being backed into a corner by bigger stacks.
It depends on what strategy you use - BSS, MSS or SSS (I don't know whether it's still exists). There is a number of players who play using MSS, they buy 50BB and usually leave the table once they have doubled up. I personally play according BSS, I don't know much about MSS in cash games, so I ended up losing whole stack pretty quick whenever I tried to start with half stack Not doing it anymore (although I'm not a cash player, I play it rather rarely and only in one room).
An interesting question because if you are on all-in you win less, but on the other hand you lose less. I bring 60% max buy-in to the table. And if you feel confident and you are in the form of bold you can make a max buy-in
I have been successfully with min buy in as I play tight game at the beginning. I tend to shove preflop or at the flop and get callers as I’m new to the table. Then Play more aggro and looser when deeper stack
