I use it equally indoors and outdoors. Eventhough my indoors is usually just snapshots of my son. I heard that the Af motor on some 50 mm lens don't work with my camera though? Does anyone know which lens works? I have a nikon D40 x

I dot have a Nikon but I think you're going to have a hard time with that budget if you want one with an AF motor, even used. I might be wrong though.

I think you want to make sure you get a "G" lens. The 50mm f/1.8G should autofocus with the D40 but the f/1.8D probably won't.



The G lenses cost more than the D lenses though.

Hey ladies!



One of my best friends has asked me to shoot her wedding in June. I have never shot a wedding before. So any tips would be great...also what lenses would you ladies recommend that I use?

NO! The mailbox was a very vital and important thing to them I guess.. Lol. I didn't even want to put her in it!

LOL. Well, I think if the mailbox is a *must*, then the image is fine as is.

Okay so I found one 50 mm 1.8 G lens for $180 under used on amazon. It says the condition is like new And under the seller information it says it's brand new in box. The seller has 100% positive rating with 3 people. Do you think it would be safe to buy?
