well you could go that way, and get a nikon d90 with a nikkor 18-55mm vr and a nikon 55-200mm vr.

The combination of those two will cost less the the nikon 18-200mm vr. However, the nikon 18-200mm vr is a much better lens, and combines those two.

Make sense...... 18-200mm Would cover it.

Would a lens for a D90 work with a body for a D40?

yes. Except alot of the newer lenses wont autofocus on the d40. Lemme check if the 18-200 will.

Yes, the nikon 18-200 will autofocus on a d40

i should say some, not all. Some newer lenses are made without and autofocus motor to be cheaper, and lighter, and smaller.

yes it will. I think that the G just means the removed the aperture ring. Those two will work fine on your d40.

The g means that "
[FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]G lenses are lenses which have been crippled by removing their aperture rings to save cost. This is a classic example of taking away features while making customers think they are getting something new. G eliminates many features with older cameras. [/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]These newest AF lenses have no aperture ring. This means that they will not work on manual focus cameras since there is no way to set the aperture. You can mount them, however every shot will be made at the smallest aperture and your metering will be way off (probably about SIX stops underexposed) since the camera has no way to know what the aperture will be."[/FONT]

Kenrockwell knows more about those things than i do.


I would reccomend the vr version of those two. The vr allows you to have about an extra four stops of exposure. In other words, a setting without vr might be:
ISO 200
Shutter Speed 1/60th
Aperture 5.6

With vr, it might be
ISO 200
Shutter speed 1/20th
Aperture 5.6


The vr allows you to work with longer exposures. It does this by reducing lens shake, thus creating a sharper photo at slightly slower settings(or longer exposures)

Alright...
So they are interchangeable, From the D90 and the D40 and they will still have the AF features in both yes?

Yes, I'm staying in the VR sector of lenses.
