You're correct, the D40 won't autofocus without an AF-S lens which is a bit of a pain. I'm not sure about any other makes of camera but the Nikons have a nifty through-the-lens manual focus assist thing that will tell you when you're on the mark in MF. Takes a little practice but I can pretty much nail an f/1.8 manual focus in about 3 seconds now. Clearly I'm not going to be using it for particularly fast-moving anythings but at 40 for a prime I'm not complaining.
