Hi, I just recently purchased a D40. And I love the camera so far. Now, I realize I abviously do not understand most of the functions this is able to use which is why I chose this camera over the D80. I figure it is a good camera to learn on.

Now I just have the kit lens and I want to get a longer lens for landscape and nature shots. My budget is about $300 for the lens. Maybe a tad more. I am also aware that with the D40 I am restricted to lenses that have the focus motor built into the lens itself.

Any suggestions on what to look at would be greatly appreciated.


Oh yes, also a friend of mine (A D80 owner) wanted me to ask about a telephoto lens for him as well. He will be using it primarily for indoor shots at hockey games so I do know he will need a fast lens for this. I think he has a higher budget so all suggestions for him would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for the excelent forums here.

Todd

Welcome to Steve's & Nikon.

Your friend might want to check out the Nikon 80 - 200 f2.8.

I don't have any recommendations for your situation, but I'm sure others will.

Best

$300 is going to put the 55-200mm VR in your sights. If you want longer, I would recommend saving up another $175 and getting the 70-300mm VR.
