Re: Anyone build off non-AF body platforms? (D40/x, D60 etc..) + need opinions
While it is possible that you can make do with the D40 at the moment, I choose to disagree that D40 and D90's performance are not far apart...

Point taken taken that photographers ages ago who had no access to current age technology still were able to get shots..and many of them did so with technology less advanced that what D40 has to offer...but this is a fact..that technology is improving each day...are we never going to embrace it..?
At the end of the day, if u stick with your D40 and were using the 35mm f/1.8, there may come a time when you may miss 'the shot' because the D40 was limiting you in terms of ISO performance...(MAY....do you think so...?)
If you are willing to spend the money, my vote is for an upgrade in the body as well...
