    buying used cameras has risk involve.

    shutter counts is just a gauge, camera shutter may fail anytime even it is at very low counts.

    should consider buy new camera instead if you have such concern.

    No worries about shutter count my dear friend. I've been using my D100 ever since it first came out (more than 5 years ago), using it to shoot for leisure and countless number of events, it's still surviving. Based on when the D40 came out and knowing that it is an entry level camera, you do not have to worry about the shutter count. Do make sure that the camera is in working condition. =D

    not sure about nikon,
    but different series Dxx vs Dxxx, the shutter life should be longer for the latter
