    If by support, you mean mounting, then the answer is yes. It can mount alot of prime lenses, all the way up to non-AI lenses.

    If by support, you mean other things, then the answer will be different.

    I suggest you refine your question, or go google and do a search

    The release from Nikon : ( functions supported )

    1) AF-S, AF-I: All functions supported;
    2) Other Type G or D AF Nikkor : All functions supported except autofocus;
    3) The newer tilt shift PC lenses: Can only be used in mode M; all other functions supported except autofocus;
    4) Other AF Nikkor*1/AI-P Nikkor: All functions supported except autofocus and 3D Color Matrix Metering II;
    5) Non-CPU: Can be used in mode M, but exposure meter does not function; electronic range finder can be used if maximum aperture is f/5.6 or faster; ( of course if u managed to put a chip into the lens, it can meter )
    6) IX Nikkor lenses cannot be used

    It mounts the same way as other lenses.
    But it will be manual focusing

    It will mount perfectly fine without having to do anything else. However, it will not have autofocus.

    you
    just
    put
    it
    on
    the
    camera
    like
    any
    other
    Nikkor

    Have you done any research on Nikkor lenses before you started in your Nikon system?

    but TS, why d'ya want to get a solely MF lens for your D40? A Tamron 17-50 F2.8 would be a wiser choice imho

    Agree. Considering the Nikkor 28/2.8 has the same aperture size anyways, the 17-50 (with a built-in motor) will definitely be more versatile as well.

    PS: If the 28mm was a f/1.8 or f/1.4, it may be a different story.

    well, I think you need to read up on mounting

    and yes, a 'nikon-mount' tamron will fit but you need to buy the version with the built-in motor. don't forget!

    Its a lens. The Tamron 17-50mm F2.8

    Its built by a 'third-party' company so it comes in many types of mounts..Canon...Nikon..etc. You'll be getting the Nikon-mount i presume

    As for whether its sth you want, I gave that recommendation based on the fact that you wanted a 28mm f2.8 prime(which can't AF on your D40) . The Tamron retains a constant F2.8 through all focal lengths and the latest model can AF on your D40, so it seems to be a gd choice
