    welcome to clubsnap and do feel free to sign up for the many outings and gatherings organised by members from time to time. you could also sign up for paid sessions as well.

    as for the 50/1.8, it's not a lens for everyone. if you can borrow one and have a run with it before deciding. if not it's quite affordable.

    you'll know that there are limitations for a AF lens used with the D40. See if you can live with it.

    Hi, is it because the f/1.8 is not an auto focus lens? a bit confused here...
    thanks

    It is AF on the other bodies, but the D40 and D60's does not have a focusing motor to turn the focusing screw on the lens. Thus you can only MF with these AF or AF-D lenses.

    You can only AF with AF-S lenses which has a focusing motor built into the lens.

    If you are interested in getting a 50mm, suggest you wait for the new AFS 50mm to come out.

    When coming out???? -> Should be around X'mas time.

    This new prime lens was designed for use for the D40, D40x and D60 cameras which require AFS lenses in order to get the AF to work.
