    I have a RMC Tokina 35-70mm 1:4 lens.
    Would these fit a Nikon D40?
    Thank you.

    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?
    Thank you.

    So I just got a 55mm lens for the Nikon D40. What other lens should I think about getting?

    Thank you.

    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?
