    The scope is 50mm of course, d40 is able to support it anyway.

    Basically, you can use almost all the newer lenses with all metering functions supported. Only problem is you lose the AF ability with non AF-S lenses.

    There are no short prime lenses with AF-S, the only one short enough would be the 105VR macro anyway.

    So it's either you learn how to MF with the other primes or look for a different camera body which allows AF on those lenses. D80 perhaps.

    for AF operation you will need a lens with AF-S
    so just look at the name and if there is no AF-S then cannot auto focus
