    yep

    and since the D40X is kinda light, imho, most tripods should suffice

    ahh, yea thats true too

    But if you don't intend to upgrade all the way to heavier, more powerful equipment, then i don't think an expensive tripod is necessary.

    Guess it all depends on your budget....

    I got the Manfrotto 190XProB + 488RC2 head. Totals over $300. Not too ex but it's an alu tripod.... not carbon. It takes my D40x and 70-300mm well. I have another macro lens which totals out the entire setup at 1.5 kg or so and this tripod + head works fine.

    Check out the manfrotto website. They have a useful configurator that can help.

    There're other makes like Benro, Velbon, Slik and of cos, the high end Gitzo.....

    Need something to take 2-3 kg weight and you should be good for at least the D40x plus some upgrades.

    Have fun !
