I have a Nikkor 70-210f4.0 AF lens. Will this work with the D40x. I need to know as I want to sort my daughter's cameras for her A-Level photography and I fancy getting her a F801s for wet film with a 35-70 lens and my old 70 -210 and then using the same lenses on a D40x. Will that work?

If it does not I will have to go down the Cannon route I suspect.

Yes this lens will work on the D40x or older cameras as well. Because all of the Nikon digital cameras except the new unreleased D3 have the smaller sensors there is a magnification factor of 1.5 which really only changes the field of view in your

Hello, your lens will fit on the body, but there is no AF. I think it is better to buy a Kit D40x + lenses. Using the old lens on the D40x will give her disappointing moments. Buying a new lens later will cost you more.
