I did some manual focusing on some coin macro shots yesterday with
the D50 and it wasn't that bad since the little green focus light
still worked. Of course, coins don't move much and I controlled
the amount of light.

But, I guess if you can afford lenses like the $400 Sigma 30mm or
the $500 Nikon 70-300mm, you don't have to worry about manually
focusing with the D40. It was a camera that would quickly get
beyond my limited budget but it does seem to be a nice one for
those that can afford it the setup.

Did you see the entire listing of AFS lenses that are fully compatable with the D40? Many of the DX lenses are not expensive.

If you choose the expensive ones, they will be expensive no matter what body you put it on.
