What would you like to do?
The sigma 10-20mm EX DC HSM is a great wideangle lens with the Hyper sonic motor you need for Focusing and metering on the DX format. The Nikon 12-24 AF-s DX is quality too - but MUCH more expensive.

Thanks for the feedback!
All lenses with Nikon mount are compatible with Nikon D40. If the question rephrase : "What lenses are able to autofocus with Nikon D40", then the answer is : the new Ni…kon AF-S lenses (with Silent Wave Motor inside), Sigma lens bearing HSM code, and upcoming Tamron lenses (18-200mm, 17-50mm and 70-300mm).
Well the D60 is better because it is more advanced, it has better quality (6 megapixels vs. 10 megapixels). If you buy the kit, the 18-55mm lens will come with vibration… reduction, creating better photos.
This is rather vague as it depends on what you want to photograph. Having said that, the "standard" 50mm f1.4 lens is good value and very fast, its also around your budg…et. The 18-200mm lens will cater for many situations, but it's more expensive.
It does depend on what kind of photography you want to do; if you want to do sports photography then you need a quite different lens from a landscape or portrait photogr…apher. Probably the most generally useful lens is the 18-200mm VR.
Not much at all, ive checked before there is hardly a difference, i cant even rembmer whats different, not much tho.
Which is a good wide angle lens for Nikon D40X i need good close up picture of our large products in Silverware brass and they are shiny products?
When photographing highly reflective objects, the lens is far less important than the lighting, and the lighting depends on what effect you are after. This is one of the… most difficult, advanced assignments in photography. A competent professional probably should be consulted. Failing that, however, your shiny brass and silver objects are hard to photograph because they are mirrors. They reflect everything around them. Pick up one of your products and really see it. It is reflecting the room, your face, any light sources, nearby objects (including the camera and lens used) and so forth. If the room is dark, the object looks dark and will photograph dark. The challenge is to make the shiny object look how you want it to look, how we think of it as looking, and that's not easy. Commercial photographers faced with shiny objects will often build some sort of light tent to surround the subject with light, which it will reflect so it looks white. Lights can be shone through the tent or bounced from the inside of it. If the lights are badly positioned, the object may reflect the instruments or hot spots or both. If constructing a full tent, the lens is poked through a hole in the tent. It will likely reflect from the object but can be retouched out. Openings deliberately left in the tent or black paper strips applied to it will also reflect and can give a shiny object greater interest, besides camouflaging the otherwise obvious reflection of the lens. The lens should not generally be a wide angle unless you are after a distorted effect. A normal to slightly long focal length is usually better, especially since you are after close-ups. Another approach to shooting shiny objects is to matte the surface with a dulling spray, available at some art supply and camera stores. Dulling sprays are usually able to be wiped off after photography with a soft cloth. The problem with making a shiny surface matte is that it no longer looks like it looks, and that's usually not what we want in a product shot.
Generally, you can with all cameras. All you need is a shallow depth of field. You can achieve this by using a low aperture (ex. f/2.8, f/1.8) The lower the f/#, the shallower… your depth of field will be.
Use the "sports" setting
The quality of a Nikon depends on the models, but typically in the models from the past couple years the image stabilizers inside the lower end models are fairly cheap. This m…eans that most of the photos will come out hazy and blurry. However, most Nikon D-SLRs have fantastic image stabilizers and take fantastic pictures.
There are many lens at many different prices and standards of quality. Buy the best you can afford. A canon EF 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 for very good picture clarity
Typically a lense of shorter focal length than 35mm. It is called wide-angle because the angle of view is wide, up to 180 degrees for some fisheye lenses.
The price of the Nikon d40x online price can varie depending which retailer product is purchased from. You can check prize comparison sites to check different prices against m…an different retailers.
There are many good Nikon lens for portrait photography. However, perhaps the best Nikon lens for this purpose is the Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G lens. The cost of this lens is …approximately $450.00.
Walmart, Target, Office Depot, Amazon would be just a few places to get a Nikon Camera lens online. Also you can go directly to the Nikon website to find what you're looking f…or.
Photographic lenses with extremely wide angle of view are also known as 'fish eye' lenses, and usually have an angle of view of 100 - 180 degrees. They are also commonly u…sed as 'peephole' viewers in entry doors. The actual focal length description rather depends on the associated technology - for short focal length purposes such as a video camera, they may have focal lengths of only a few mm. For standard 35mm equivalent, the focal length will be between 10 and 20 mm.
