Hi everyone, I am a Nikon user (I have had a D40 as my first camera
for about a month). But I find it could do better with better
lenses(I own 18-55 kit lens and 55-200VR and not satisfied with them)
so I am considering lens upgrade. After some research, I feel
disappointed about Nikon.

If you've only had an SLR for a month, assuming it's your first SLR camera, you probably have a lot more learning to do about how to make an SLR "sing". You should have another 5 months of learning curve before you become comfortable with your camera and getting consistent decent photos.

The first thing you need to do, if you haven't already, is get out of full auto mode and into Aperture priority mode. You can't get better if you don't try and an SLR allows for creativity and TELLING the camera what to do instead of taking what it calculates for you to use.

And since you've only had your camera for a month, I doubt you have the experience to fall back on that your lenses are holding you up. If you are comparing your photos to other photographers with much more experience (and better gear) then stop that!
