    I have one of these but when attached to my D40x the auto focus doesn’t seem to wanna work.

      Your AF will not work with this lens.
      This is an FX Lens (non-DX) and works with full-frame Nikon bodies (D200, D700, D600/610, D750, D800/800e)
      or DX bodies with the internal focus motor (D50, D70/70s, D80, D90, D300/300s, D7000+).

      Anything D5000+ , D3000+ including D40/40x, D60 will NOT Autofocus. Still a good all around lens to keep if you don’t mind manually focusing.

      Any Nikon / Nikkor lens with a “DX” label on it will AF on your D40x.

        Vic, I have had this lens with my D100 for 10+ years, and I to honest I was never really impressed. I’ll be getting a D700 soon from a friend, do you think I should hang on to this lens?
