I understand Sigma sales material in that way, that you can put Sigma-lens for Nikon on any modern Nikon DSLR and that it should work fully. But I believe that non HSM-lenses from Sigma don't autofocus on a D40. But the same holds true for Nikkor AF (non AF-S) lenses...
So before trying this combination with a D40, you better check out!

Yes, that's right. As far as I understand it, you'll need a Sigma HSM model for the autofocus to work on a Nikon D40 or D40x. The HSM lenses have the focusing motors built in, like the Nikkor AF-S models.
