Re: D40 Good Enough?

The long and short of it is yes.  I owned one for 6 years and loved it for what's called the number of "keepers".  6MP is fine.  I've seen amazing pictures shot with a 3.6MP Nikon.  You will have to do what's referred to as "menu diving" mores than with a upscale camera that has more external controls, but if you move up the a D3000 or D5000 series, that doesn't change much.  I suggest you keep your D40 until you feel that you have outgrown it.
