Ken Rockwell's guide is the best for those old lenses.

On a D5100 you may be lucky if any will meter. On a D7000/D90, they may work but you will need to check the chart to be sure. You may like the Best Buy Black Friday sale for D7000 with 18-105 VR lens for $999.

At the same time he has a decent guide for the newer lens. For $100 (kit price) the AF-S 18-55 VR kit lens can get you started. Ken's guide can steer you to other choices depending on what you shoot.

For example, the AF-S 35 1.8G for $199 can be a great buy.
