    Can anyone tell me if the Nikkor 70-300mm f4-f5.6G AF will fit on the Nikon D50? I know that most lense by nikon will fit but just making sure. I don't have my camera yet(on its way) but while shopping today I saw the lense for $70 and couldn't pass it up.

    As said above yes. Only real big difference is that the lens does not have an aperature ring. Aperature can only be set by the camera! But for full functions it will work as its supposed too on your camera. ;)
