Anyone think that with the release of the D40 that Nikon will be making a major product line update for their lens- i.e. moving many to AF-S? Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but i would love to see some upgrades along this lines. Wouldnt it look bad for a new dSLR owner to go out and try to lens shop only to find a lot of incompatible lens out there?

-the 50 mm 1.8 makes a great inexpensive lens, perfect addition to any new dSLR owner getting to know his camera
- the 70-300 G is also a solid lens for a newbie, but also lacking AF-S

There are a lot of lens that Nikon has on the market now that won't work with the D40.

Solution:
- upgrade their lens

-or-

- have a lot of ##### off new owners

i'm hoping for the former
