My sister has an awesome Nikon Camera and helped me by taking some pictures, but they are NEF files. I dabble with Photohop Elements 6 and a Panasonic Lumix, so I pretty much live in the digital stone age.

 

Is there an easy way to convert NEF files to TIFFs, or PNGs or even good old JPEGs?

If you're referring to the file size on the disk, ie: how much room it occupies, that's driven by the file format, degree and type of compression, and so on. If NEF is a raw file format, it's likely using very efficient non-lossy compression.
 
The graphical size is what you want to keep an eye on: the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the image in pixels.

50mm lenses are relatively simple to make, and that's one reason why they're relatively inexpensive. Even assuming the same level of build quality, optical quality, and mechanical sophistication, a 50/1.8 would be cheaper than a 28/1.8 or 85/1.8 or 200/1.8; likewise, a 50/1.4 would be cheaper than a 35/1.4 or 24/1.4 or an f/1.4 telephoto. You're probably best to save up for a while, and to look for a used lens in reasonable condition to save some money relative to buying new.
