Yes, they'll work. They would have the field of view similar to 42-120mm & 105-450mm though.

Yes these lenses will work fine with the D50. This is the nice thing about Nikon. virtually all their lenses from the last 30 years will work on all Nikon cameras. (with some exceptions and limitations) a 20 year old manual focus Nikon lens will of course only work as a manual focus lens on your D50 and metering won't work, but the lens will take a good picture.
The G lenses work great, metering AF etc.
Remember though, that with all digital cameras the focal length of you lenses changes. Multiply the focal length of any lens by approximately 1.5, to find it's correct focal length with a digital camera. Your 28-80 becomes a 42-120, and your 70-300 becomes a 105-450!

Best of luck. I love my D50, and I hope to have a gallery up on Nikonians soon.

Any SD (Secure Digital) memory card. Depends on what you intend to use your camera for. If you need to take rapid shots for say sport get a faster card. If you just take 1 shot at a time a standard speed card will get you going if your on a tight budget. Try and stick to branded cards as they have better warranty's if the card fails. Also remember that if you intend to shoot in RAW a 512MB card will store approx 70 Images. i would get a 512MB as a minimum. Hope i have been of some help. BTW the D50 was my first DSLR and i can tell you you will not be diapointed.

SD is the name of a kind of card. They have many different brands on them Lexar and Sandisk are the two main ones in the US.

I have the 70-300 G which I use with my Film F75 and F80 and now I have the D50. The 70-300 will take good photos , considering its price I think its a very good lens at that price range. It is bang for the buck. The only thing is make sure you use a monopod or a tripod whereever you can with the D50 abd 70-300G combination to avoid camera shake as it is effectively a 105-450 mm on the D50. I get fairly good results and sharp results at around f8/11 @ 200mm. Also make sure that you buy atleast a 1GB card, in that case you can take around 280 shots at JPEG - Large - Fine setting.

Happy clicking.
