Hatfields vs McCoys... (D40) First DSLR for me. I'm a die hard canon fan as far as point and shoot but growing up with my father's avid enthusiasm for his F4 made me go with a trusted brand name. Despite the price ($550 with rebate for kit) in comparison to competitors (rebel, olympus...) it has a solid construction both when handled and in appearance (matted black). I thought the rebel felt a little cheap in terms of the plastic quality and this camera certainly does not feel that way. Power ...

Pros: Size and weight. Lots of pre-programmed settings so you can set the icon to the type of picture you intend to take and then you can snap away. Rechargeable battery. I prefer the lithium ion to the AAs. Expandability. Price. It's not cheap for a camera but if you do the research, you'll find that it's a bargain for SLRs. Trusted brand name. Cons: Lens cap doesn't come with a string to hold to the camera or the lens. Camera strap isn't that comfortable. Spartan written documentation. ...

Upgrading from a D50 I miss the display on top of the camera but the D40x makes up for it in other areas. The image quality is mind blowing and the user options are plentiful. Low light quality is stunning and this should by all means be camera of the year. I use it with the stock lens and a newly aquired 18-200Vr and the combo is flawless. The camera is fast, noise free and a true hard to beat winner from Nikon. Problems: none

Having just bought the Canon A640 and terribly disappointed by it, I was relieved to lay my hands on this beauty and shoot the first 100 pics. I don't know why anyone would want to take pics with a point and shoot! The pics from this camera are absolutely amazing outdoors. I have not had a chance to test it indoors. This is my first DSLR ever and so I don't mind the lack of backward compatibility in lenses with this body. I have been a lifelong Canon fan, but after my recent disappointment ...

I've been shooting with the D40x for a couple of weeks now. It is my first SLR of any sort, ever. I had been using Canon digicams - PowerShot G6 and before that G4. I was so disappointed with the G6 that I used for 2 years because the metering always over-exposed, I had increasingly bad purple fringing, and shooting was too slow for capturing kids. I wish I had gone with a DSLR two years ago! OK, about the D40x (with the kit lens and Speedlight 400). I love it! I am so comfortable ...

I use many digi SLR cameras but d40x is my first own. Autofocus is impressive, versatile shooting modes, fine RAW file format image details, long battery life! Problems: Autofocus only for AF-S AF-I lenses.

excellent camera. I own 2 Canons, XT and XTI. I had to go spend other peoples money(I love doing that) and got them the D40X, 70 300VR and kit lens. Great camera. I "tested it" to make sure it worked ok and was quite suprised at the value for the money.

I had the D40x for about 2 months. I find it very neasy to use, with excellent results. I particularly like the the fast focusing. I very often sit in the evening and take shots of the objects around me, much to my wife's annoyance. Great camera with beautiful results. Problems: I wish the lens cap had something to attach it to the camera when in use.

I have used this camera for a week. It is a second camera to a D200. By comparrison with the D200 it is a bit plasticky and the AF is not as good on moving targets; that was to be expected at this price and weight. The image quality remarkably is as good as the D200. Program shift in P mode is easy and effective, as is exposure compensation. It is not obvious that the viewfinder uses mirrors rather than a proper pentaprism; it is bright. The ratings I have given are irrespective of ...
