Hey all,

I'm after a lens that will enable me to zoom in on things at a distance i.e. the face of a football player or bee on a flower. I'm looking to spend about £100 and it has to have an internal motor to AF on my D40.

Any suggestions? I have looked on eBay too but have no idea what i'm looking for ...

Thanks in advance.


Look here. ]http//ww…ses If you want bees on flowers you'll need a macro lens, which will increase the price.

as above you will need a macro lens and if not using a vr lens you may require a tripod probably due to not been able to hold your camera still enough.

Tamron 70-300mm F4/5.6 DI LD Macro (Nikon AF)
or Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Macro DG (Nikon AF Including D40/D40x)
or Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro (Nikon AF)

i would suggest them in the order they are in

hope it helps these also double as telephoto lens as well
