    Me again.

    As per 15,000 other threads, I have a Nikon D40 with the 18-55 and 55-200 lens.

    I've definitely been persuaded by many a very lovely MacRumors chap/chapess that an 18-200 lens would make life sweet, no more frantically changing from one lens to the other.

    The Nikon 18-200 lens is a little beyond my budget right now, so I've been looking at the Sigmas.

    This is where I'm hopelessly confused.....do any of the Sigma 18-200 lens auto focus with the D40? I'm getting wildly conflicting advice on this. No say most, but then there's this update.

    What do you think about the Sigma 18-200 for the D40 - good idea or not?

    Thanks.

    do you really need an 18-200 and lose so much flexibilit to that range? a tamron 17-50 and an old nikon 70-210 together would be much better than a slow 18-200
