New Sigma Lenses For D40

Okay, i know the lenses are not meant for D40, what i'm trying to said here is if you have a D40, you cannot use Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, never mind. Sigma has now bring you the dream. The Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC MACRO HSM for Nikon and it will Auto Focus on your D40. What more it come with macro? but in 1:3 factor.

Beside that, you still have another option. The Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC MACRO HSM for Nikon.

Cheers!!

for more info please refer to:

Yeah this is great news, I was wondering when a third party 17-50 or 18-50 f/2.8 lens would come out with a built in AF motor, suitable for D40 users.

All the more reason to get a D40x as backup now!

haha..agree with u guys.

now sigma had bring a wide angle f/2.8 to D40's users.

Nikon had replace most of the AF lense to AF-S, hopefully coming up next is AF-S 50mm and 85mm.

Sigma famous with the peel off aroune the zoom ring? hopefully they do better in these new lenses.

i think a lot of the user will advise you to get tammy for wide (17-50) and macro (90), telephoto will be sigma i guess?

Sigma built quality is usually slightly better APART from the coating.

The coating ALWAYS peels off.

The Sigma HSM focusing is also very good.

The Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 is definitely the best in that range, for macro either Tamron 90mm or Sigma 150mm and for telephoto usually people go for Sigma 70-200 f/2.8.

Sigma 10-20mm is also a fantastic lens.
