17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro

Large aperture standard zoom lens designed specially for digital SLR cameras.

The lens is ideally suited for a wide variety of subjects and is designed specifically for digital SLR cameras featuring APS-C size image sensors.

This is a pretty decent lens for the price, much better than most of the kit lenses. Cheapest price seems to be around £200 elsewhere. Seems to be collect in store only, I got mine today in Llandudno.

£226+ online by the looks. Voted hot.

Is it AutoFocus on the D40x?

Sorry not sure about the D40 but it works on my D70 and my D50.

u need hsm version for d40, d40x d60, this is the old model.

I bought one from jessops a week ago (at this price). Nice deal, nice lens. Already had the 18-70DX but this has a few amusing functions like close focus (almost macro I mean, not short!). Potentially a good lens.

This won't AF on the D40/x/60. That's why it's cheap, Sigma have launched a HSM version and Jessops are clearing old stock.

And don't forget to add code LENS10 at checkout for an extra 10% off - this also works with collect from store too :thumbsup:

Oh - and potential 3% quidco.

Looks like they are running out, I just checked and it is collect from store only and the nearest one to me with stock is 25 miles away.... :x

sorry, i'm a bit of a camera novice - dumb question - does this mean that i can use it with the d40 if i focus manually, but that it won't AF?

cheers

Yes it does.

Yes it does.



Agreed.

Excellent lens for the price. For the nikon D40 and D40x you will need the HSM version (not this one) - Macro on this lens is almost perfect, it focuses perfectly. Image quality renders vivid images, excellent sharp quality.

Only real downside is that it is a heavy lens. But all the good ones are.

PLUS, its not 2.8 all the way! Only wide open at 17mm

thanks for the post I have just order one for local collection using the 10% discount code, £71.97 BARGIN!
