Good stuff David.

In my honest opinion, the D40 is a very underrated camera, which is interesting in itself. Its 6.1mpixel chip may not be the newest or largest, but after 6 years of development with that same chip Nikon have really managed to tune the software to it. The handling and menu systems are logical, and all results that I've seen from mine so far completely satisfy my needs, and those are more important to me than a bunch of really useful specs.....

Auto-focusing lenses will be a problem, but considering that you are using non-Nikon lenses, you'd be expecting to focus manually any way, I gather. I'm not sure why auto-focus is such a necessity to some when it's only in recent times that it's become available.

Cheers
Chris
