Why does Ken Rockwell favor D40 over D90?
Dec 12, 2009

He says every time he needs a camera for casual pictures he reaches for the D40. I ask because I have both and was thinking of giving one away (the D40). Now I'm stuck with the one Rockwell does not favor.

There are reasons I got the D90

1) Most pictures we look at once and the D90 screen is a wow machine

2) The Viewfinder on the D90 is much better

3) Live View sometimes makes a big difference when taking low level dog shots

4) Difference in weight is 6 ounces

I wanted to hear about users' experience with D40 vs. D90 please
