I've done what I was asked and searched previous discussions but I'm afraid I'm still confused especially as the lens I am thinking of isn't listed in a list of lenses that WILL autofocus with the d40x. It could be an old closed discussion and/or a fairly new lens???
I did a live chat with Jess*ps here in the UK last night and I rang a "leading photo retailer" today, only to be given conflicting information.
I'm thinking of buying a
NIKON AF-S DX NIKKOR 35 mm f/1.8G SWM Prime Lens
I've got a 2009 ish Nikon D40x.
The standard kit lens is a
NIKON AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G II ED
I assume the 35mm lens will fit. I can't actually find anything where it actually says this lens works on this camera though.
I saw that the D40x got some criticism because some lenses won't autofocus on the camera though - but I think the AF-s have a built in motor?? I'm completely confused.
If you can offer any assistance please that would be great.

Yes, Any "AF-S" lens has a built in focus motor and will focus on the D40 camera.
