Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor Telephoto Lens

I want to know if it will auto focus with the Nikon D40. Im about to by a d40, but i wanted to know if it will auto focus with it. It just needs to be AF-S to auto focus with d40, right??

It's a nice handy lens to have... will work great with the D40. You are right, stick with AF-S (silentwave) lenses on the D40. Enjoy it!

Just so you know you can get that same lens for considerably cheaper at B&H: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/449088-USA/Nikon_2161_70_300mm_f_4_5_6G_AF_S_VR.html

yeah... i knew that, i was just browsing through pricegrabber, and i just wanted to make sure it was compatible. But, i could always price match. Ive done that a lot recently. Its easier, because BB is closer to me... and BH is closed on fridays and saturdays, and i usually buy stuff on the weekends. But price matching is easier anyway... But thanks anyways

Since it's AF-S, it'll work great on the D40. I have the version without AF-S and vibration reduction for my D50 (which can autofocus legacy AF lenses) and it's an amazing lens.
