    Nikon E Series Lens - Compability?

    Quick question, will an E series lens (in this case, Nikon 50mm 1.8) fit on a modern digital camera (ie D40x)? I realize autofocus will not work, but for $45, if it fits the camera, I'll be just fine. Thanks!

    List of compatible lens for the Nikon D40/D40x/D60

    Noticed this on another forum, and thought it would be very useful over here. This is a list of lenses that will autofocus with the Nikon D40/D40x/D60. The big thing missing from this is the MSRP pricing, but that changes per country. Maybe this should be a sticky? List of current fully...

    I was in looking at the D40/D40x at the Black's Photography Store (in West Edmonton Mall), and when asked about seeing the camera, they did not have any in stock.

    What size memory stick?

    I'm rather curious what individuals on here are using as the source of memory storage in their cameras. Not the card type, but rather the size (1GB, 2GB, 4GB...) I'm currently at odds between getting a 2GB card of a 4 GB card for a Nikon D40x, with 18-55mm lens. I realize there is a different...

    How good is VR?

    I'm currently looking at purchasing a Nikon D40x, with the Kit lens 18-55mm. I've noticed there is two kits that each containing a second lens, 55-200mm. The sole difference between these two lenses is that one has VR. Now for the questions, is VR worth the extra cash for it? Could someone...
