I think 50mm may be a bit too narrow for me. Is there anything around 24mm (35mm ff eqv) that'd be worth it?

The sigma 24 f1.8 would be excellent if not for the lack of auto-focus with the D40. If you think you can live with manual focus (green dot confirmation) the sigma is the perfect 35mm equiv for the D40.

Note: the Nikon 24 f2.8 is too slow given the max iso 1600 (beyond that the D40 IQ is obliterated). Moreover, it doesn't come close to the sigma in terms of close focus.

Problem is that the Sigma is rather expensive.
