Just wondering if any F31fd users own the new Nikon D40x? I like my F31fd but found out that it's slow (in focusing, between shots using flash - recycle time) when taking pics of our daughter who is a 11 months old speedy gonzales crawler! Other times, the F31fd is fantastic and the prints come out superb. Would the Nikon D40x be fast enough to shoot a 11 month old?

Own the elder brothers of both - the F30 and the D70. Both should be up to it, with the F30 set to High Speed Shooting on. :)

dependent on amount of light for exposure which in turn is pretty much determined by...

Aperture, ISO, shutter speed and to some extent, lens used.

No one should expect a F31fd or any compact for that matter to match DSLRs for speed.... it is already fast compared to older compacts.
