Boy do I feel stupid

I just bought a 50mm 1.8D as a Christmas present for my friend who has a Nikon with kit zooms. He has seen photos taken with my camera with a fast 50 and liked the shallow DOF. So I thought I would get him a fast 50.

I did not do my research and now realize he cannot AF with the D on his camera... I remember the AF limitation on the old D40/D60, but just assumed Nikon had gone away for that.

Anyway he wants to upgrade the camera (a few years old and with some dead pixels) to one that will AF the D lens.

So he does not want to spend a bunch of money, $400ish - so I am asking for suggestions on used or refurb models that will shoot the cheap kit lens. And also his kit zooms.

Thanks for the help.
