nikon D50 lenses ?

Posts: n/a
I have a D50 with a Quantary 70-300. I don't have it handy but I think it's
like f/4 - 5.6. Works great for action and sports on bright sunny day but
you can't use in low light. It's very light weight.

Sorry! My mistake! I did mean the 18-55! Park Cameras are seeling this for
84. Some idiots are buy them second-hand on Ebay and paying 100+.
