    Default Getting A DSLR

    Hi all, I would like to switch to a DSLR camera.
    Some friends recommend me NIKOn D40.

    But overall is D40 the same as d40x.
    choose which is better.?
    Or got other recommendations to get an average DSLR camera.

    here are the difference :

    Comparison between D40 & D50

    D40X & D40

    Differences compared to the D40
    10 megapixel sensor
    Lower base sensitivity (ISO 100 vs ISO 200)
    Auto ISO option includes ISO 200
    Faster continuous shooting (3 fps vs. 2.5 fps)*
    * Slower with noise reduction enabled

    If you are not shooting for a living, and intend to expand your interest in photography, you may want to consider a 2nd-hand D50 or D80. Or if you are the type who likes to tweak around in PhotoShop, then a D70 will work fine, cheaper too.

    D40 has no internal focus motor. Therefore, lenses without focus motor will not be able to AF. If you can do with manual focus, then there will be no limitation.

    Therefore for D40, the AF lenses are limited.

    if you can find an old D70. get it, it is great as a first DSLR. not kidding light and very versatile.

    the battery last forever and you can get very good shots using 6.1MP.
