I am a first time dslr guy, and wanted to ease my way into the game buy purchasing a camera second hand. I think I got a good deal camera and lens for 500 but I can't be for certain.

The lens it came with was a Nikkor 50-200 VR. It's got a smudge from what I can tell on the lens, but the seller "said" it would come off easily.

I'm really nervous here. LCD worked, SD Card worked, I took a few pictures and they came out fine. I really don't know.

Any tips on things I should look at right now to make certain it's not a rotten piece of junk?
