D-40 is great for starters so why hate it?
Nov 4, 2006

Why does everyone hate the d-40 just because it doesn't fit their needs? It is meant for starters (like me) who want a dslr that is capable of taking great pics for a low cost. Here are the specs:

6.1 mp

very small (475 grams)

Affordable ($500 with the new 18-55mm II kit lens)

SD/SDHC

iTTL compatable

Same image processor as the D-50

No status screen

3 point auto-focus

new, smaller viewfinder

Nikon D80
18-70mm nikorr
