D40, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, which lens next...Please help
My apologies if this is already a thread,
but wondered if any of you could help
I have a Nikon D40 with a standard 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens
The camera is superb for me and I initially got it to take moving shots.
Ive taken some pretty good photos over the years but I need to take close up photos from a distance.
So can anyone give me some advice on which lens do I go for??

If by "close up" photos, you mean macro, and from a distance, you'll probably want to look at the AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.
If you meant that you want a nice telephoto zoom, then you will want to pick up the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED -- it's said to be one of the best for what you are looking for and will be a good investment when you eventually upgrade your camera body.
Here's the Nikon official pages on them:
G5/2.0DP 2GB/1TB/2TB/, ATI 9600/128
Quadra 605, 20MB/80MB
iPods: 32GB 4G "Touch"; "Photo" 20GB; "Mini" 4GB (Silver)

If you have about $1700 burning a hole in your pocket (probably not, since you got a D40), you could look into Nikon's 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Otherwise, it sort of depends on your budget. Probably your best bet would be one of the 55-200mm lenses, which are fairly cheap but have decent optics, though not a great max aperture - f/5.6 - for telephoto, especially if you're shooting action. There's a reason good lenses are expensive.
