RedSquare-

I managed to find the Nikkor 50mm F 1.4 on e-bay (the world's biggest gargage sale)for $(US)130.00 with $(US)8.00 for shipping. Enjoy your shooting today and have a great weekend.

I don't thinkany of the 50mm primeswill work on a D40. My1.4uses the focus motor in the camera that the D40 does not have. I think the 1.8 is the same.

ReneB3-

You are correct. The 50mm primes will not work on the D-40. The photo I posted was taken with my D-50.

Rene,

I think the 50mm prime will work, but it won't AF on a D40 body due to lack of internal focus drive servo (motor). You will need to manual focus the lens. (Green dot in Viewfinder)

I believe Sigma have some 30mm 1.4 HSM lenses that will AF with the D40.
