Re: Nikon D40 missing cons.......

..............from the review.

Strange how the reviewer saw it fitting to post these cons about the D50 but failed to apply them to the D40 con list.

Still some moire / maze artifact pattern visible
Kit lens performance is pretty average, corner soft, light fall-off (?)
the only kit lens difference is the focus wave motor .
No Kelvin white balance selection
No mirror lock-up (vibration reduction for long / macro exposures)
One command dial

LCD monitor display gamma can make some images appear over-exposed when they aren't (?)
not sure about this one.
No viewfinder grid lines (surprisingly useful if you're used to them; D70/D70s)
No vertical grip (portrait grip / battery pack) available
Encrypted white balance in RAW files limits third party converters
