Hi folks,

I'm very new to the subject of photography in general (I dont even get my N80 till the 29th of August) so far I've purchased a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens, but I want to be able to shoot distance as well, my friends seem to be divided on the subject of fixed focal length, and zoom lenses, I dont have a lot of money to dole out on a lens but it seems zoom lenses are fairly affordable, is the difference between fixed and zoom really so noticible? and would anyone have a recommendation for an AF lens that would suit me? (prefereably Nikkor and under 400 bucks, feel free to point and laugh if thats an outragously low sum of money)

I appreciate any help or input I can get, thanks.
