Hi! Gab here, well, I got hooked when my friend loaned me his Nikon D40 and I've been lurking for a while seeking my first DSLR. I have a Pana LX 3 that I'm using right now as well by the way.
Anyway, I'm sure this is the 27846720th time guys have been asked this question regarding which camera should I go for.
In anycase, I'm kind of torn between getting the Nikon D40 off my friend (He is planning to upgrade) with the stock kit lens or a 2nd hand Olympus E520.
I guess as a new comer to this, I know I should not spend too much on a total new setup and learn all the nuances and features that will most certainly give me a few sleepless nights. However I tend to worry about the lack of the warranty if I go go for the D40.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Oh, the Canon 450D and 1000D is equally enticing as well, and after reading so many threads. I guess the equipment doesn't matter to an extent, but what you do with it.
Edit : Just more info, I prefer to shoot scenery primarily and People second. I'm not sure if that's too abstract to be of any help though.
