    For new lenses, u can check out the nikon price list on this forum for more information on latest prices. Even for the quoted shops, it is still wise to do some homework prior.

    which prime lens you are refering to? make sure you do your research before going to shops to buy, even reputable shops sometime might try to chop you if you sound or look lost...

    not really, the D5k can mount and use all the f mount lenses but some with limited function
    (check your user manual)

    to see the full range of lenses that has full function on a D5K
    go to nikon singapore web site and look at the lenses page
    any lens with an [AFS] in it's name has full compatibility

    Who quote you $800 for a prime lens and which prime lens?

    Here are some prime lenses you can use on D5000 with AF-motor built-in. The Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G should suit your budget, cost less than $400 and the rest should cost less than $800 if I'm not wrong.
    1. Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G
    2. Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.4G
    3. Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM
    4. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM
    Nikon D5000 | NikKor AF-S 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G VR | Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G | SB-400

    Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.4G
    Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM

    Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8D is a very good and a very inexpensive lens. You can also find lot of people selling them in Buy/Sell Nikon section.

    Nikon did not make an AFS 50mm F/1.8. I'd recommend the AFS 35mm F/1.8 DX instead.
