Question about Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8D VR G-AFS ED-IF Lens
Auto focus does not work
Lock it at f/32. Autofocus lenses have a lock for smallest aperture (highest number) because that is wht the camera body expects. The lock won't engage at any other position.

hi ! iam too a D40 holder,u can opt for AF-s versions or HSM sigma,both of them autofocus on d40,can go for 18-200 AFs VR or if u need still longer end go for 70-300 but it is costly than the sigms 70-300APO DG HSM MACRO..,its a much better reviewed lens and dont forget the cost..anyway do some research before considering..good luck

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.

SOURCE: nikon 18 to 55 lens wont focus
Check to make sure the manual focus/auto focus switch on the lens is set to A. Make sure the lens is completely mounted to the camera and locks securely. If this does not help, or if the lens was dropped, then you should consider buying a new lens. the cost of fixing the old lens may be at least half of the cost of buying a new one.
