I was recently asked by a friend to recommend an SLR that was a
small and easy to use step up from a P&S, and despite it lacking
all those 'killer features' I suggested the D40 based on what SHE
needed out of a camera and HER level of expertise (and her budget).
For her the D40 was perfect and she loves it - and she takes it
everywhere. Guess what i'm saying is different strokes for
different folks.

Well hard to argue with that.........fair enough. But I pretty much every SLR has an "auto" mode....aka dont need to think.

Sure not everyone will demand a high feature set......

My only concern is that unsupecting buyers new to SLR land may get less than they bargained for (aka limits on lenses for one thing)

Are people aware of the weak spots?
