Kriss, you can find the shops selling any camera equipment at the following site:

http://cameralabs.pgpartner.com/

The fisheye that's designed for Nikon DSLRs is the Nikkor AF DX 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and there are some prices and stores here:

It's not an AF-S which means it won't autofocus on your D40 (or the D40x), but it'll have so much in focus, it's not a big issue.

Forum member Thomas is a big fan of it, and he talked about it in the Nikon forum here:

Just watch out, Kriss!
The Nikon 10.5mm does not focus automatically on your D40. You have to focus manually :!:

There is the Tokina AT-X 10-17mm 3.5-4.5 AF DX Fisheye. But that also is around 500EUR and also does not autofocus on a D40/x :cry:
