My D40 or back to film?
Dec 8, 2012

I like my little D40. Low on MP but pretty good at everything else for a camera i paid less than 400$ with kit lense. A few weeks ago i tried an Olympus m4/3 with a Minolta 50mm 1.7 lenses. The aperture ring feel and zone focusing were bringing back joyfull memories (Pentax Me Super).

What can i do if i want to get back the aperture ring handling and zone focusing?  Can the D40 handle a more manual 35mm lense without losing metering?   An older FF camera with older lenses?   Going back to film (getting a nice old 35mm + lenses)?  Digital is more inline with my type of photography. I am just missing the feeling i was getting with my Pentax Me Super and Canon Ql17.
