What would you like to do?
No....it does not have a built in focusing motor (AF-S in Nikon terms). In fact I'm selling mine because it won't auto focus with other DSLR cameras (even after servicing) that don't require AF-S. ( But it does work great with manual focus).

My lens for my camera got wet there was some condensation inside but it is now gone it is an auto-focus long range lens for Nikon D-80 can i still use the lens or should i just get a new one?
Answer . I would at least try the lense on a few pictures and see what the quality is. Depending on the price of a new one, you could even remove the front lense and clean… it, or have it done by a professional.
Make sure that it is not on the no flash mode (the circle with a crossed out flash)
I would definitly answer "yes" to the best quality lens you can afford. I shoot soccer as an advanced hobby and find that even the 70-200mm VR lens is sometimes not long enoug…h, so I've broken down and purchased the Sigma 50-500mm lens. It's about half the price as the shorter range Nikon and the photos are AMAZING!!! Because sport action happens so fast, there is no time to change lenses, so this one is perfect because of its range. Plus in sports, it's always exciting when you can get all those amazing expressions on the faces of the players, and that would not be possible with a normal or small telephoto lens. Most sport photo sites will tell you that a minimum of 300 mm is a necessity for decent photos because you'll be cropping like crazy with a shorter lens, and then of course the quality of the photo will be drastically reduced and the details will be absent. I was never able to shoot a decent sports photo without a nice long lens. Another factor when shooting sports, is that you need a good quality FAST lens. I find that when I'm out at dusk, or if its raining, the only way I can get a decent shot is if I'm shooting with a F 2.8 lens or better. If its a nice sunny day, or if the sport venue will allow you to use a flash, then the Sigma lens is amazing for the price of about $1,000.
There is Nikon F mount version for Tokina lens. Nikon D300 uess F mount, it will work for sure. But make sure to by "Nikon Mount" other than canon, petax, or s…ome other cameras
The d60 is better. Buy this one if you can afford it. If you don't, try the d40 then. It has less features but still has great quality.
pixies and fairy-dust
There is a wide selection of lenses you can pick most nikon lenses would fit but diffrent companies like telephoto lenses wont autofocus because the nikon d40 autofocus …motor is too small.
Yes, but they won't act the same on a D40 as more expensive Nikons. Only AF, AF-D, AF-S, and G lenses will meter on a D40 and ony AF-S and G lenses will auto focus on a D40.
Should i get a 50mm prime lens for your Nikon D40 I don't really know how to manually focus and i have the 18-55 mm lens?
Yes! Manual focussing is easy and that is a great lens.
No, Canon lenses on Canon; Nikor lenses on Nikon.
It works but no auto focus just manual focus.
As of Aug 27, 2012 it runs about $630 new or $330 used. Both of these prices include the 18-55 kit lens.
One can buy Tokina lens from Tokina, Amazon, Bythom, Ken Rockwell, The Digital Picture, Digitalic Camera Warehouse, Camera City, BH Photo Video and many more.
If you have a Nikon d3200, you can get it back to auto focus by going to the setting and then resetting it to auto focus.
When I go from manual focus to auto focus on my tokina 11-16mm lens on my nikon d5500 it stays on manual focus on the camera. How can I fix this?
There should be a setting in the back or a switch on the outside ofthe lenes
