Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I'll have the cash in place to upgrade my lens. I have a D40 with it's original kit lens which I have found to be a pretty decent all rounder but I really fancy getting the 18-70 that comes with the D70 and I believe D80 and using that as my standard. When I was doing my initial research I got the impression that it was a very well regarded kit lens especially for the money. After reading numerous posts on here I've started to wander about the lack of AF motor in te D40. I assume that this isn't the case with the likes of the D70. Does this mean that I would only be able to focus manually through this lens if I bought it?
