    That is true, but also get a 50mm prime because then you will learn about depth of field!

    This, except I believe the D5000 has the old autofocus issue that the D40 and D60 had, so you'll need to get the 50mm 1.4 AFS as opposed to the much cheaper 1.8 which most of us have.

    Still, the 1.4 AFS is a much nicer lens and I kinda wish I'd got that instead of the 1.8 anyway.

    Apart from that though I'd say the advise just to learn with what you have is very sound. Then give me a shout as I've got a load of Nikon lenses that need buying :)

    You can use this one, and it's cheaper than the 1.4:
