Which 50mm for my D40?

Hi, I am looking for a 50mm for my D40, I would like the Sigma one with auto focus but at $500 ,it's just not in the budget right now. Will any Nikon 50mm function(minus the AF), or is there a certain model I need for this camera? thanks

Both of the current Nikkor 50 mm lenses (f1.4 and f1.8) are compatible with your D40 (minus auto-focus). The f1.4 is pricey @ around $300. The f1.8 less so @ about $100.
The 50 mm has been considered the "Normal" lens because it approximates normal human vision. But with the D40's 1.5X crop factor, the 50 mm now equals 75 mm!
I have the Sigma 30 mm f1.4 HSM (IIRC about $300), which is an excellent lens and auto-focuses with the D40.
