Good starter DSLR
Compairing this to other DSLRs, I find that the D40 is a very user friendly camera. I haven't compaired it to the 10 megapixel D40x, however picture clarity is amazing. The included 18-55mm lens is versatile and lightweight with excellent closeup capablility. As advised by several Nikon users, the 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 af-s dx vr Nikkor lens is worth the $750 investment, and will be my next purchase for the D40. For quick, quality photography, the automatic settings are A+, however if you need to change depth of field or exposure settings, the controls are easily accessible and simple to operate. Ordering through Buy.com via merchant Adorama had my purchase at my door within 72 hours(without request of special delivery)at a very competitive price. Overall, this was a very good buying experience.
