Telephoto lenses for the Nikon D40 and D60

In photography, a telephoto lens is a specific construction of a long focal length photographic lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length. In these lenses the optical center lies outside of its physical construction, such that the entire lens assembly is between the optical center and the focal plane.
