Re: D40x and 18-200VR Great travel combo!

I also have a D200 which I absolutely love, but I felt it was just too big to be lugging around through museums and the like. So the D40x gave me the same resolution in a smaller package. I had to really discipline myself not to take other lenses as well. I have a 12-24mm and it would have been nice on maybe a dozen shots. I just couldn't consider another pound in my small backpack for three weeks!

A few years back I took a FE2 (film) with a 35-135mm zoom to Europe and it was perfect; so I was trying to the duplicate the size/quality package this time around. I think it was a success, and I'll be using teh D40x more for my field forays and leaving the D200 to the studio work.
