I have an FG, but will be moving up to N8008s or 6006 in 6 months or so. In mean time I'd like to buy AF lenses that will mount and work manually on the FG, but will also work on N8008 or 6006 in future. (unless someone can explain why it would be better to buy one of the N-series like N-70....then I might go for one of those.

I'm a poor, struggling college student and can pick up the 6006 or 8008 for $200 or so and the 28-28 for $75 and the 70-300 for $130. Do these sound like reasonable prices? What does the "G" or "N" after some AF designations stand for? I understand that AF-D lenses only work AF with certain cameras...and not the 8008s or 6006. Which series Af lenses will work AF with 6006/8008s?

Thanks for hlep.
