Would just a f 2.8 or something be better? Would one of them Auto focus properly?

I'm a bit of a camera noob tbh.

Can someone tell me if that is manual or autofocus? Also if it would autofocus on the D5000.

Also ... is the D5000 a full sized chip or a smaller one? .... If it is a smaller chip you will be terribly disapointed with the fisheye.

That must be what's causing the drag. I kept on checking it and the weight was showing as 10 grams too much, in the wind tunnel testing we could not work out what was causing the extra unit of drag too. :p Never even tried to line of the valves, I was just hoping to get the pic taken before the wind blew it over. :)

So..., Considering buying my first Digital SLR type camera, what do I need to look at, anyone got any pointers on what to look at, what will I get for say $800-1000? (Or possibly less) :D
