I use that same combination and it works great. The D50 has a focusing motor built into the body, so it will drive this lens for AF. I have read some reviews saying that the D50 is not as snappy with AF on this lens as with other bodies, but I it seems plenty quick to me for shooting ballet and soccer.

Your D50 has a focusing motor and will drive the AF 80-200. It's confusing because Nikon took the focusing motors out of some of the lower cost cameras after the D50 was introduced (D3000/5000 and others). See page 106 of the D50 owners manual.

Yes, it was updated from the push-pull type of mechanism to a two-ring function (one for the focal length, the other for focusing). This may seem rather unusual or perhaps even counter-intuitive, but it does work well. It's still a very good and sharp lens to have and use. I use mine (it's the second version that has the limiting switch, not a ring to limit the focusing range) and it's been a solid lens.

Product # 1997 is a TC-20E Teleconverter, and no this lens has not been updated to a newer AF-S/ AI-S type. That is a popular request and it has been passed on to our product development group in the past.

It will still focus, but it depends upon which position the switch was in when it broke off. If it's on the "Limit" setting, it's going to be quite limited in the range that it will work within. You will notice that it will stop at a certain point and won't focus past that spot (either near or far, depending). If it's focusing throughout the entire range, then it broke off in the "Full" setting, which is good because you can at least still use the lens. You (or the current owner) should consider getting that replaced/repaired unless you/they really don't use/care about that particular function.

You should consider getting that replaced/repaired unless you really don't use/care about that particular function.

answer 1
limit/full switch is used to stop the automatic focus from moving too far. Sometimes you will notice that the lens is moving in and out a long distance to get the focus. If you use the limit/full swith in the "limit" position then the lens will not use the full focus range and this will save battery life. I generally leave it on "limit"

Hope is helps!!

answer 2
The full/limit switch speeds autofocus by limiting the camera to "looking" for a subject in either longer ranges or closer ranges (depending on where you are focused when you set the limit). In the "Full" position the lens will hunt through the entire range when it needs to focus and this can take a long time.

If you are only shooting close (or far) subjects, use the "Limit"

There is no easy answer to this question. It's all a matter of supply and demand. Have you checked with other online retailers/mail order houses? If you don't mind getting used equipment, you may also consider checking online bulletin boards to see who is selling their equipment at steep discounts (based upon its condition and amount of use, of course). You can also check with your local professional processing labs to see the For Sale postings if you really need one now.

The six-digit serial number can be found on the "bottom side" of the aperture ring. It is engraved on the surface and can be seen from an angle. If you are the original owner, you should immediately record the serial number from the registration card that came in the box. This will help you when you need to provide it to Nikon Professional
Services (NPS) or if you have to make an insurance claim (theft, damage, etc.).

The answer is yes and no. Yes, in that all supported functions on the D3000 will work; and, no because the autofocus function won't work with the AF Zoom Nikkor 80-200mm in place. This is because there is no motor to drive the autofocus mechanism in the lens barrel like there was with the earlier crop of autofocus cameras. The current DSLRs all use the SWM to drive the lens. I found this out when I tried it on my D3100 and nothing happened. After some research and inspection of the mounting ring on the body, I realized that there was no pinout that drove the zoom lens like there is on the F-series of bodies (from the F4 on up, and the N-series of autofocus cameras).

Yes, due to the fact that DSLRs with the DX sensor use only a small portion of the overall area. This means that the 80-200mm lens will be a little bit "longer" in focal length due to the crop factor. This means that you will effectively have an 136-340mm lens (due to a factor of approx. 1.7x).

because it's no longer officially produced. (my guess.) but what do you need the manual for? it works pretty self-evidently, and if you want to find technical data and measurements, you can find plenty on the web.

Sorry, but Top 10 Contributor answer is not correct.
AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED is really can create clear images in AF mode, but it will work with your D5000 only in manual mode (no Aftofocus) and that means that there is no warranty to get clear images.
D5000 do not have internal AF motor and AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED also.
If you want to have Autofocus mode with D5000, you need to use Nikkor lenses only with internal silent motor (all of the lenses must start from "AF-S ..... ) or upgrade your camera to D90, D300S or D7000 and use .AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED in AF mode.
