    Yes you can. No, I don't see why it should.

    It'll work with an adapter but you will have to manually focus and the VR will not work.

    You have GOT to be kidding. The 18-200 is an AF/S lens and therefore works fully on the d40. Check Ken Rockwell's review of the d40 if you don't believe it.

    He posted in the Canon forum using a Canon camera name (40D), the Nikon camera is the D40 and yes, that will work perfectly on a Nikon D40 as it has an AF-S ultrasonic motor. VR will work too.

    As long as you're talking about a D40 not a 40D. The Canon 40D is a totally different camera and will not use a Nikon lens without an adapter (plus loss of AF and VR).

    the OP specifically says CANON 40D.

    no, it won;t work. there may be some adaptor somewhere that may have it work in some limited way i suppose, i don;t know. but really, why would you want to ?

    Oh my. Sorry, somehow I was thinking of the Nikon, I had several threads open and I didn't think about checking the forum. Sorry again and thanks for correcting me.

    Even with an adapter it will not work.
    The adapter which allows you to use Nikon glass on a Canon camera only works with lenses that have an apperture ring. The 18-200 is a G lens which means it does not have this ring and that the apperture can only be controlled by the camera body.

    Older Nikkor lenses that have an apperture ring will work fine with the adapter and offer stop down metering on a Canon camera. The only reason to do this, though, is because these lenses are cheap.

    Of course. I totally didn't even think about the fact it is a G series lens. Ah well, what do I know about Nikon anyway! hehe
