Re: Nikon D40
IIRC one of this things to remember with the d40, the focus motor is built into the lense, so if you want to keep the auto focus feature you need to buy a lense which has the motor in it...and from what I remember, makes the lenses more expensive.
I have a d40 myself and never bothered with another lense, simply because of the cost
