I currently have a Nikon N55 (have had it for 3 or 4 years....can't remember). I love this camera as it has complemented my skills (or lack of skills) as an amateur/hobbyist photographer. This camera came with the 28-80mm Nikkor lens. I am thinking of buying the following lens but am unsure if it will work with this camera: Nikon Autofocus 70-300mm f/4-5.6G Nikkor SLR Camera Lens Does anyone know if this lens will work with my N55? I live near some mountains now and near the Rio Grande so I'm looking for a lens to zoom in more than I can now and for a not-so-high-price. That is why I'd like to get this one. I'm also looking at buying a DSLR Nikon (the D50) by the end of this year. I'd like to buy the body only as it is cheaper but want to know if these lenses will work on the D50 (the 28-80 I have now and the 70-300 I am thinking of buying). Anyone know the answer to this? And the final question is about the Nikon Speedlight Flashes. Are there any that will work on both the N55 I have now and the D50 I plan on purchasing in the future? By the way, if you are one of those experiencing the autofocus problems associated with the Nikon N55's, they are now offering to fix it for free. Mine has started doing this every so often that is why I am looking to go digital in the near future. Here is the link: http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/n55.html Thanks!
