D40 Good Enough?
Jun 24, 2013

Hi There,
About 2 years ago I bought a second hand D40 as I wanted to get into photography. My life was too busy at the time so I never got a chance to put enough time into it. I did find, however, that when I got it right, photos turned out better on my old 1980s Zenit film SLR than the D40. Maybe it was the old-style aesthetic that came from the Zenit, but they just seemed to come out better.

Now I'm finally looking at devoting some serious time to photography and I'm wondering how the D40 stacks up. Is a 6mp mid-2000s DSLR going to be a good thing to learn on, or are the photos just going to be on the whole unsatisfying and would I be better looking to get a new body?

Any opinions would be appreciated.
