I also have the Nikon D40 and right now just have the kit lens. Yes, I am aware of the Auto-focus lens issue with the D40s. As you know, the kit lens f-stop, the lowest is f/3.5 (or 3.4...can't remember). Anyway, I really want to be able to achieve greater DOF and was wondering if anyone bought any separate lenses for this camera. My understanding is that they cost a fortune because you have to buy one that has auto focus built in since it doesn't do it on camera.

On the otherhand, maybe I am not using my kit lens to its greatest. Have you been able to get a good DOF with some good blurred backgrounds with your D40 kit lens? Maybe I need to learn the lens more.

Just looking for advice or insight if you also have this camera. I really do love it, just wanting the lower f-stop.

Thanks ladies!!!
