    Im buying a Nikon D50 tomorrow. The kit lens is an 18-55mm which is good, but i also want a longer zoom lens for sports shots. Preferably one that zooms to 400mm (35mm eqv so i guess thats about a 270mm digital). Nikkor lenses are pretty expensive. Are there any other brands compatible with the D50?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Indoor or outdoor photography?

    If your going to be doing indoor work, get an f/2.8 lens such as the one below.

    $140 for a telephoto lens? You'll be dissapointed, I garuntee it.

    Here's a snippet of another post I made about cheap telephoto lenses in a different thread:

    I'll tell you a great deal if on a common lens also...an older Nikkor 70-210 F4 AF. They are abundant and cheap. A nice example can be had used for $100.00 or so and will deliver awesome picks.
