    Wow, serious. Is it only 1 unit faulty of is it main technical fault? I'm consider this as one of the options too.

    For sure, the AF-S is Nikon lenses with motor inside.

    These are the difference that bother me.

    1. D40 has a faster flash sync speed than D40x.
    Beside knowing that sync speed is the fastest shutter speed you can use with flash. What else does it really help in?

    2. ISO 100. From a magazine I read, it said it's better for long shutter speed or studio flash. So what say you guys?

    3. Shutter:
    D40: Combined mechanical and CCD electronic shutter, 30 to 1/4000 s. in steps of 1/3, bulb
    D40x: Electronically controlled vertical-travel focal plane shutter, 30 to 1/4000 s. in steps of 1/3 EV, bulb
    What is the difference between these 2? Which is 'better'?

    marsulein, please tell me if I'm hijacking your thread. Will remove my post.
    Oh please, dont be silly! There's no point in starting another thread of the same topic, is there? Besides, I just know of something which I dont know from your research.
