Compatible Lenses for Nikon D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D5000

Users of the Nikon D40 through Nikon D5000 cameras are probably aware of the fact that these cameras cannot autofocus with all Nikon-compatible lenses.  These cameras lack a built-in autofocus motor and, therefore, must rely on the motors inside the lenses in order achieve autofocus.

Since the introduction of the D40, Nikon has shown a commitment to making lenses that are compatible with all its DSLRs by putting autofocus motors inside.  The following list contains those current lenses from Nikon and will be amended as new, compatible lenses are introduced. Where applicable, I have included links to Amazon, B&H Photo and Adorama product pages for each lens, where you can check availability and prices.  If I have missed current lenses that should be included, please let me know by using the contact form.
