Question about Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor Lens
Being all excited first time using a dslr, when i was packing everything i just screwed on the cap without looking that it needed to connect and align with the white dot, but I've asked a friend who has the similar lens and he said even screwing it without aligning it you can still unscrew it as long as when you are unscrewing it, your turning it clockwise. If i look at the cap it looks like its evenly screwed. im not a strong person so i dont know how i could have tightened it so tight.

The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.

The 50mm lens is fairly old and uses a different system to the later lenses. On the D90 and other later cameras you should rotate the ring to 22 and lock it there using the lock just above the aperture ring.
To adjust the aperture you use the front dial by the on/of switch.
Try it out in A mode. Rotate the mode dial on the top left of the camera to A (Aperture Priority mode) then lightly press the shutter button to turn the meter on. Then rotate the front dial and you will see the aperture reading changing.
The older Nikons changed their apertures using the ring but the later Nikons use the camera controls.
