Re: I wonder

The D40 is the camera that finally got me to take the plunge. I wanted something stripped down, and similar in size to my FE and would handle my primes. I am from the school, that the fewer bells and whistles, the better. Auto-focus with any lens is just a luxury for me. So, the lack of AF with older lenses is a moot point for this buyer.

I spent weeks deliberating between the d40, d80, and k100d. The d80 was just too much to justify, and it was too big. The k100d hung in the running closely, but after trying it and seeing its image quality and SR ineffectiveness (another luxury), the d40 won by a long shot. It makes me smile everytime I snap a pic with my 50mm 1.8.

I have a feeling this camera will quickly become a favorite of walk around street photographers. It is just perfect for this. I am not sure what I would do differently.
