I will suggest u get a D70/D70s instead of d40. If i'm not wrong D40 have some problem supporting other higher end lenses. Take note, D70/s comes with a Master Built-in Flash, it will come in handy when u are planning to do Creative Lighting System as u will onli require 1 external flash. As for the kit lens, if u can, try get a 18-70mm, it will basically cover all the range u need, if not u can always try 18-55mm D50 kit lens which is cheaper. Cheers!
even now I still think D70 is a very good camera to learn about photography and can still take very good pictures.
At 350, it's really quite a steal.
Do checkout the condition and ask for shutter count though.
