Nikon D40 DSLR

The Nikon D40 did away with the built-in autofocus motor, among other things, from its body to minimize cost and be able to offer the new DSLR to more people at an affordable price. Since its debut, test reviews have confirmed that the D40 is a very capable DSLR, affirming Nikon’s design move.

Without the built-in AF motor, the Nikon D40 will have to use lenses with built-in AF motors. These are called AFS lenses.

Sigma has announced that it has a line of those AFS lenses, fully compatible with the Nikon D40 mount. Most of these lenses have the HSM motor in them with the exception of the 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 EX DG OS which is optically stabilized.

10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC
