Hello everyone, I have had my Nikon D40x now for nearly a year and am very happy with it,I'm still a very much amature photographer :mrgreen: I'm very interested in doing macro shots and have been looking for a suitable lens. The one I have been looking at is the Nikon AF-S VR Micro 105mm. What I'm confused about is that after reading different posts is that the D40X would have to manual focus?? is this right? Also Iam led to believe this lens will be great for portraits.... Hope to get some feed back.
