comment Tamron 18-200 mm vs Nikkor 18-200 mm lens
@connersz: I wrote "There are probably numerous other differences in materials and build quality" - but I agree it doesn't help the OP (who should go to a shop and handle both) so I've removed that remark. Some refs added for other points.

comment Wondering if my Nikon lens is broken
For what it's worth: the standard lens with the early D50 was the AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G ED. A DX lens. I think the later D40 had a VR version but I'm not sure if any D50 kits included this.

comment So my iPhone 6 camera lens is as wide as my full frame 35mm DSLR lens?
@user1899082: "full frame" isn't to do with how much of a scene the camera can capture. It's to do with sensor size only. A "full frame" sensor has a sensor approximately the same size that an old analogue film camera (not necessarily an SLR) exposed onto 35mm film. Full-frame is what was actually long regarded as small and low quality in the days of medium-format and large-format film cameras. It got it's name because early DSLRs typically had sensors significantly smaller than the area of film exposed in an equivalent film SLR. Later it become economic to make bigger digital sensors.

comment Does this Camera Lens to Mobile phone camera interface exist?
It seems to be real but it also seems to be a way to get the bulk of an entry-level DSLR or CSC camera while losing any auto-focus, metering or VR features of your old DSLR lenses.

comment Which Nikon DSLRs have an autofocus motor in camera body?
You have listed some older DSLRs there but missed out the D50 which has an AF motor in the body.

comment Use Nikon D3100 in snow
See Flickr search for a practical answer. Plenty of people have used a D3100 at the top of that mountain.
