For $26, you can't really go wrong.

The 50/2 HC is a very sharp little lens that puts many zooms to shame. It was the first Nikon lens I bought back in 1975, and it's one I still like very much.

Your copy has not been AI converted, but that will not stop you mounting and using it on a D5000. Check carefully about compatibility should you decide to change cameras. (Or better still, get it converted to AI.)

This looks to be a non-Ai lens, and should mount on the D5000 as it does not have a indexing leaver. Also the lens will not meter, so you will have to guess at the exposure in M mode. Use the LCD Histogram to guess at correct exposure. Also use the green dot inside the viewfinder to confrom focus. You can also turn on the MF rangefinder in the menu to help with MF.

Good luck.
