Got the 35mm AF-S on my D40 and it certainly does auto focus. Perfect trophy shot lens on a cropped sensor camera such as the D40 as the FOV will pretty much equal that of a 50mm lens on a full frame camera.

Takes a lovely picture as well, nice blurry backgrounds and pin sharp focus. You wont look back

Thanks for that Dave, I dont take a lot of self takes atm, so thats not something I'd thought about, so will look at the 35mm.

Think I read somewhere tho I need the AS-F-G model as the AS-F wont auto focus on my D40??

Yes the afs 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens wouldn't mind one myself.
I only have the afs 35mm f/1.8 its a great quality alround lens and perfect for catches plus its about the right angle for self taking, I think you would find 50mm a bit narrow for self taking as the camera would finish up further away. They are both great lenses though for me the 35 which is near enough 50mm, on old film jobs used to be the standard has more uses

Are you using live view?
Live view focus works by contrast detection and requires more light
you do need a reasonable amount of light for the auto focus and exposure to set.
I have found one torch isn't enough and a bit of back lighting helps

I doubt your problem is about getting to close as the kit lens, if that is what you are using focus down to around 12 inches.
As said your problem is exposure related. Set the camera on full auto, up pops the flash, camera auto focuses and away you go

Think i may have been getting to close when i tried auto my brain is doing all the normal stuff that i did from my G6. I had a set distance to be from camera and i think maybe it's to close for the D5000.

So night mode is a definate no no then ?

Hi Drew

the night setting is for special effects not intended for normal shots. The reason the shots are blured is that the camera is setting a long time exposure, which it would do to make the most of the light that's avaiable.
For night shots you need to use flash any other method will not give the best results.

Many of them are blurry and i obviously need some settings set up. My previous camere G6 someone gave me some settings which i stored and they were great night shots.

Seem to remember f stop 5.6 whatever that is, any help appreciated as i'm a photography numpty
