    Avoid any lens that says DX on it... those are just for DSLR's... anything else you will be fine with, although VR won't work on your camera I am guessing.

    If you are wanting some high quality VR glass, I would upgrade ye ole camera to something a bit more modern that can use VR lenses like an N80 or N90.

    The F401 (N5005) is a pretty decent AF camera. Basically any Nikon AF lens except for DX lenses, the 80mm f/2.8, ED 200mm f/3.5 IF, and autofocus converter TC-16/TC-16A) will work just fine.

    You don't need another camera. By the way, I use Nikon manual focus kit and Canon digital kit.
