I have a RMC Tokina 35-70mm 1:4 lens.
Would these fit a Nikon D40?
If it's a Nikon mount lens, it will "fit" on the D40 and it will probably even be able to meter through the lens, but I doubt it will autofocus with it. Here's a list of lenses that will autofocus with the D40:

I have not checked, but have you looked on the Tokina website and verified if this lens has a built-in focus motor or not?
I haven't checked.
I'm kind of new to photography.
Would it matter if it had an auto focus or not?
I don't mind focusing manually.
Would it work well with a Nikon D40?
I looked on Tokina's website and all I could find was a 28-70 2.8. It has an internal motor so yes it would work just fine on a D40...
Well that would certainly be helpful, if she had a 28-70 2.8.
No matter what, you can stick it on there if it is a Nkon mount. But autofocus and metering is what will make the difference.
What I was getting at, was are you sure that it's a 35-70 not a 28-70. couldn't even find one listed anywhere.
The lens I have are old. It belongs to my father. He bought it around the mid-80s.
In addition, I only have the Nikon D40 body.
What lens should I get first?
Nikon 18-55mm VR AF-S DX Digital Lens
I found these on ebay.
Are these lens okay? Are they worth buying?
So I just got a 55mm lens for the Nikon D40. What other lens should I think about getting?
With the D40, you'd probably like to get AF-S lenses or 3rd-party lenses that have internal motors. Have you looked at the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8?
