Because its only 200 bucks the price of a replacement lens shade for my
Leica 21 and I'd e shooting with it for 9 months.

A D40 is DX cropped format. FX means FF full frame for nikon.
You can use a full frame lens on a cropped camrea but a cropped lens is
optimized for the format and more ideal. It will be cheaper, lighter,
smaller ideally sharper.
