I'm a super newbie, just started on photography with a D40 i got at a steal from Courts (last place I'd expected to buy from, honestly), at $588.
Currently still trying to figure out how to perfect DoF and landscape shots, hoping to learn more from you guys!
See y'all around, yoroshiku! :>

Wow, D40 for $588 only? With lens? Brand new?
If yes for both, its a real steal!

Haha, yeah $588 for the D40 kit which includes the 18-55mm lens. It was a totally unplanned purchase; I had already drawn $850 to buy the D60 but since the POSB was at the same level as Courts I just popped in for a while just to check what was their price for the D60. Seeing the "Today only!" offer was a pleasant surprise. :>
Can't wait to get past the "ghastly newbie photos" phase soon and have something decent enough to post here already.
Edit: I have also bought a 8GB kingston SDHC card for $39 (didn't know the market rate for this but it seemed kinda cheap) and a Hoya UV filter for $15, so the final damage is actually $644.
