In response to In response to 0



From the note on page 16 of the D3000 User Guide:

"Autofocus is supported with only AF-S and AF-I lenses, which are equipped with autofocus motors."

So for every lens you want auto-focus for has to have a focusing motor, with the appropriate material cost, in the lens, unlike some more expensive camera bodies that include an auto focus motor within the body.

You can buy a AF Nikor 50mm f/1.8D new for about $125.00, it will not autofocus on the D3000 since it has the focusing pin that interlocks with Nikon cameras that have an internal focusing motor.
