D40 or D5000 as first DSLR?
Aug 7, 2010

I am getting a D40 with 18-55 non VR lens refurb for $400 and a D5000 with 18-55 VR lens new for $750...

I am on a tight tight budget, a grad student without a job, trying to make ends meet..

But at the same time I wouldn't want to get soon to a point to upgrade my gear atleast not for a few years. Also, this would be my first ever DSLR and I have never handled one..
