Hi guys

Perhaps you could give me some help. I am just about to buy a D40 and this will mainly be used for aircraft photography. I know that the camera does not contain an AF motor, so will it work (with autofocus) with the Sigma 50-500 lens.

Think I know the answer but just to be sure!

All the references I've looked at for lens compatibility state that the Sigma 50 - 500mm will autofocus with the D40, since that lens is HSM, i.e., with its own focusing motor. I only have a Sigma 10-20mm HSM, and that works fine, but maybe youi can get a more definite answer from someone else. Hope that you've got an assistant to carry your gear!
