comment How do I select a focus point on the Nikon D5000?
I am asking how to switch from a focus point to another during half-pressing of the shutter release button. If I understood right...

comment What's the advantage of buying a fixed 50mm f/1.8 lens when my camera has an 18-55mm zoom lens?
... and the producer's page : imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/singlefocal/normal/af-s_50mmf_18g/… notice "Silent Wave Motor (SWM) realizes quiet AF operation"

I have the Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AF-S SWM (Silent-Wave-Motor) which has autofocus for my D5000 which is, just like D3100, without in-body focus motor.

I do have the 40mm Micro Nikkor 2.8. It's quite nice for non-macro work such as portraits!

I've seen an even faster card at sandisk.com/microsites/ExtremeProSDHC/index.html which states 'Performance/speed: Up to 45MB/sec write/read speed (300X)'
