Hi everyone,
I am going to order a lens today for my D40x and I have heard that only Nikkor AF lenses are compatible to it. I tried a Quantaray with it once but I had to focus it manually. Is this the case with all lenses other than the Nikkor AF? I would love to get the 18-200 VR from Nikon but it just isn't in my budet at the moment (baby on the wa I am mostly interested in large zoom range. My next choice would be the Nikkor 70-300 But $500 bucks is pretty expensive as well. Then I read a review of the cheap Nikkor VR 55-200 and it said that although it was plasticy feeling it was very sharp (in good light) and well worth the money. That sounds like a good lens for me considering the price. Can anyone give me any advice? If I can get a good lens that is comparable to the Nikkor 18-200 or 70-300 from another maker that will work with my D40X at a good price that would be great. Thanks in advance for any help!
