Re: D40x lens compatibility advice needed please

Your camera is compatible with AF-S lenses. Forget the older AI-S lenses that you are unlikely to find them.

Stay away from AF-D lenses as there are better versions now in AF-S and you will lose the AF.

AF-P lenses will literally not work on your body so don't buy them.

The 18-55 mm you have has VR in its name? If yes you could look at something more telephoto (like AF-S 55-200 mm VR). If you have the non-VR version I would keep it only for close-up (not macro) in good light.

18-200 mm VR is an expensive lens with a lot of compromises in order to get that range. Are you sure 200 mm is mandatory.

You can chose between AF-S 18-105 mm VR and AF-S 18-140 mm VR which are better than 18-200 mm lens and also cheaper. If you want to be future safe better get 18-140 mm VR which performs brilliantly on 24 MP sensors.

Below there are some photos taken with that lens:
