Lenses for Nikon D50....and 35mm. needing interchangeability

by JJohnson / March 3, 2006 6:08 AM PST

I am about to purchase a Nikon D50. I do not presently have, but anticipate buying a 35mm SLR in the near future.

I have heard that there are some lenses made just for the digital camera and others that can be used on both. Can someone shed some light on this? How do I know when I am buying? I am also unfamiliar with the classes of Nikon (Nikkor) lenses. I have not really gotten any good information in this area (ED/AF/DX...).

Thanks in advance...jj

lenses for DSLRs. FYI, Nikon has stopped developing film cameras, although I think they are still selling some of their existing models.

Canon might be better if you want to pursue a dual digital/film strategy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
