Yes it will. HSM is the same as AF-S for Nikon brand lenses. HSM and AF-S lenses do not require the in-body autofocus motor that the D40X does not have.

I agree with S. Mason. This is similar to the Sigma 30mm 1.4 HSM, which is widely touted to work on Nikon D40/D40x/D60.

But if you can wait until December 2008, Nikon will release its version -- a 50mm 1.4 AF-S prime -- for less than the Sigma 50mm HSM!

Yes, the Nikon 50mm AF-S f1.4G has been released and is available at many retailers. In fact, some have already sold out of the first shipments.

Pardon my asking, but is it different than the lens I am asking about?

Sorry, I guess I should have asked for clarification. When you asked if the "lens you mentioned" had been release, there had been 3 lenses metioned... the Sigma 50, the Sigma 30, and the Nikon 50. So... which lens are you asking about? Only the Nikon 50 is a recent release... the other two have been out for a while, which is why I assumed the Nikon was what you were asking about.

I probably wasn't clear....it seems that there was a new 50mm lens put out by Nikon
# 2180 AF-S Nikkor 50mmf/1.4G which I think replaces the slightly older one.

Thank you. Do you have any fotos posted on flickr, etc where you used this lens? I ned to check out both the slightly older AFS lens and this one to make sure I don't get them confused...I can do that easily.

No, sorry. The only things I have online are in secured customer areas.
