ok guys,as is the norm,I am new to dslr,in an earlier thread in the nikon forum I had said that I had got myself the nikon d60,well I took it back to the shop and got my money back,now the reason is,I did not know that the AF was only on /in the lens,so I thought I could be quite restricted to what other lenses I may want to put on it,so what I would like to know,is this,will the canon eos 50d,or 40d have the AF inside the body,and would the nikon d90 have the AF inside the body,or what camera has the AF built in??
thank you for looking.
I am looking more towards the canon eos 40d,and the nikon d90

Look elsewhere............say Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Samsung.

Canon and Nikon all have IS built into the lenses and not all lenses at that.

The original post was talking about AF, not IS.

The Canon range are immune to this, as they never put the AF motor in the body. All their normal lenses have AF motors of some form.

As popo says, all Canon DSLRs will work with all Canon lenses since 1986. With Nikon, a Nikon D90 and above will have an in-camera focusing motor that should focus with all lenses.

Brain fart. That should have read Nikon D90 and not Canon D90. It's Sunday and I've had a beer.
