    I'm a Nikon guy, but the N50 is not one I'm familiar with. I'm pretty sure that it will accept the D lenses, so the 70-300 should be fine.

    I've heard that the 100-300 is a cheapo, so I'd stay away from that one. Someone might have a different opinion...

    As dinodan said the Sigma Zoom Telephoto 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL Macro Super Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF-D will work with your N50. As will AF-D lenses which send subject distance information to the camera's Matrix metering system.

    Also you can mount AF Nikkor lenses which will auto focus through the full range of programs, AF-I Nikkor/AI-P Nikkor lenses (which will need to be manually focused due to being incompatable with the autofocus), AI or AI-S type nikkor(including AI modified Nikkor) Reflex Nikkor/Series E lenses (which also need to be manually focused due to being incompatable with the autofocus). The camera will also use the "in-focus" indicator confirmation with Manual focus lenses that are f/5.6 or faster.
    This is all from the N50's instruction manual. Which, if you don't have one, can be found here: www.butkus.org It designated as the F50, but it's the same camera.

    I just got one of these cameras about 2 weeks ago, and they're pretty good cameras.
    I hope your Girlfriend enjoys using it.
