IMO the worst thing about Voigtlander lens is their overpriced hood.

BJMcKee51: I just purchased a D3200 to replace my old D40, thinking I was getting a much better camera, but it seems like there is almost no difference between them, especially as far as picture quality goes. 24mp file sizes are impressive, but useless to most of us casual users, causing very slow downloads. On my 24 inch iMac, I can see no difference in the photos from the two cameras. The "Live View" function is clunky and annoying. There was no lens hood included with the D3200, while there was a hood with the D40. I haven't tried out the video function, yet. At this point, I feel like I should have bought a different Nikon body, but I don't know what one. For beginners, the D3200 still may be a very good camera. It is light weight and would be nice for carrying while you are hiking or biking. I have had no problems with it so far.

I have used the D40 extensively...it takes good photos but I do think newer models have several advantages
1. DR (DR in new sensor is so much better, esp in raw)
2. better JPG engine (automatically remove CA, distortion corrections etc)
3. VR (comparing the kit-lens, not the camera body)
4. less IR pollution (D40 can suffer from such issue if you shoot people wearing black fabric)

resolution on computer screen? to fill up a "full HD" monitor you just need a picture with 1920x1200 pixels...

PS. i don't think a lens hood is included in a D40 package (Nikon 's package, not retailers' package)

'We already have hundreds of stories of STANDARD SD cards that have survived trips through the clothes washer and dryer. We have heard about cards retrieved from cameras dropped in the ocean that still had all the images intact on them.'

Care to provide some links to these HUNDREDS OF STORIES to back up your statements?
I'd be very interesed to read them!
Or are they just STORIES.

I have cards (CF/SD) survived in washers, this is not just a story.
Never sent any cards to a dryer so I cannot confirm that.
