    new D40

    I see that nobody has posted in 30 days, but I will ask for help anyway. Just bought my daughter a Nikon D40 body only. I guess I need a lens. I really don't want to spend alot as a single mom and she is just learning the camera ropes. Any suggestions?

    That's because you're not posting in the Nikon DSLR section. The camera didn't come with a kit lens? You can probably pick up the kit pretty cheap. You could even get it used. 18-55mm VR

    Lukas is right, it is not too expensive. The vr version would be the one to get.
    Also the Nikon DSLR fourm right below this one is where you will find more information
    and several other D40 users.

If you are going to do somthing fancy. You can upgrade to the best that camera can handel, at a mid range price. a Tamron
    AF18-270 Dill VC B003 Nll About $360.00 new Thats what I'm researching right now.
