    I have a Nikon D40 and I have found to my cost that the Auto focus only works with lenses that have built in motors.

    Can I buy non motorised lenses and then use with the manual focus? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Yes you can manually focus non-motorised lenses. Not such a problem for well-lit static photography.

    If you want auto-focus you'll need a nikon lens marked "AFS", the 18-70 mm is a good one for all-round use, or Sigma lenses marked "HSM". The latter tend to be the EX range which are generally good , an example is the wide angle 10-20mm which seems to be pretty popular amongst landscape photographers.
