Sweet, I've been looking at there 55-200mm F4-5.6 DC HSM I wish it was just a little bit faster. For the price though I guess you can't beat it.

Save up your pennies and you could just get the 18-200VR and call it a day.

But this all depends on what and where you want to shoot. For most general, sunny day photos, the 18-200 VR should be all you need. If you need low light, either you need "professional" zooms, or fast primes. They all cost a lot of money, and the short range primes do not autofocus on the D40 (with the exception of Sigmas 30/1.4). If you like landscapes, teh 18-200 could work, but many prefer an even wider view and go for something in the 10-24mm range. That leaves you with either the Nikkor 12-24/4 or the Sigma 10-20. Both autofocus on the D40. Sports photography typically requires long lenses that have fast apertures. This means very expensive. The 18-200 can do it if there is enough light, but once the sun starts going down, or you move indoors, forget about it.

If you are looking for a 55-200 range, I would recommend Nikons 55-200 VR. I guess its much better than the previous 55-200 non-VR, and should be much better than the Sigma counterpart. I believe Sigma is coming out with an 18-200 OS (optical stabilization) HSM lens. That would be the cheap alternative to the Nikon 18-200 VR, and its a simple one lens solution from wide angle to telephoto.

Anyways, like stated above, cheap and AF-S are typically not used in the same sentence. Unless you are talking about the 18-55 and the 55-200.

Depending on my $$ situation in a month I'm either going to get the 18-200vr or the sigma 10-20. Eitherway I'd like to end up with both adventually.

Unfortunately this is true.

I tried to warn people of this before, the D40, while it takes good photos is rather limited.
