One long lens,
This review is from: Nikon 55-200MM F/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX Black Lens (Camera)
I've come back to photography after twenty-five years away so I still think in 35mm terms. I have this lens on my D40 and was very surprised at its long range which will be quite enough for me to take cricket photos this summer. I have a bad tremor but seem to have no problem getting good results with this lens so the VR works. The autofocus is something else but manual focusing is easy enough. For the money I don't think you could get any better but keep your 18-55mm to hand because I think you'll need both.

What is the problem with the autofocus? I have a D40 and was thinking of buying this lense but I have an eye problem that means I am dependant on autofocus. Does the autofocus work with the D40?

There is no problem with the autofocus. You have misunderstood the reviewer's turn of phrase. By saying the autofocus is "something else" - he means its "out of this world". In other words, its very good indeed.
