    I just picked up a Nikon D50 with the 18-55 kit lens. I would like some other lenses to play with but don't want to spend much(I know, whats new). I ran across these on my local Clist. Would this be a good deal for some starter lenses? I've been reading good things about 50mm 1.8 on this forum but I can't find as much about the others.

    That seems like a good deal. It not being AF-S lenses is what is keeping that cost down.

    Which means it will auto-focus on everything but a D40, correct?

    I contacted the seller about some condition specifics. She says she thinks she has a buyer, so I guess I won't be getting these.

    That's a great deal. The 50/1.8 is worth $100 new by itself (more if it's the AF-D model). The 70-300G is about $150 new. Not sure about the Sigma, but $100 would be a good deal for just the first two lenses alone. As long as they're in good shape, go for it.

    Plain old AF lenses will AF and meter on a D50 no problem.

    I was too late. The lady said they were already sold. I sent the email as soon as I saw them, but I guess it was too late.:(
