Default Manual lenses with D100

I might be able to buy the D100 body soon. To save money I thought I'd use my manual Nikkor 50mm lens from my old FM until I can scratch up $$$$ for an AF lens. I understand I'll be shooting in manual with the lens. Dumb idea?
All comments welcome.

You can buy a cheap zoom lens from:

this way you have most of the focal lenghts you will ever need , and also auto focus.

Default Old lens in D100

Thanks for the tips. It's just not worth it to go with the old lens. I'll spring for a 28-105 Nikkor AF.
Thanks

Hi Observerguy,
I have that lens (28-105) and highly recommend it. It's the lens I use 99% of the time. A great all around lens.

It's a good lens with a fine macro facility. Good choice.
