Question about Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8D VR G-AFS ED-IF Lens
Auto focus does not work
SOURCE: Nikon D80 auto focus
I had the same problem but then I realized the lens was not "in" all the way. It had not clicked into place when I changed lenses. This might work for you....it did for me.

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

Hi - I own this lens and it manually focuses at all focal lengths (hard to see at 18mm unless your subject is extremly close). You may need to get the lens checked. BTW - Mine was set as follows when I checked for you:

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.
