6.1 or 10.2 mega,depend on how large you want to print your photo out.
for me,6.1 is enough to print out a A4 size photo.so!i will buy D40.
if use 10.2,can you print out poster size for every picture you like?:D

What's your level at?

Just starting out and need to learn about apertures and shutter speeds?? I'd suggest the D40 then, go slow and figure the basics out.

But if you're already proficient in these and want a tool that'll give you more, go for the D80 or D200... make sure you have good lenses for these 2...

If this is the case, start slow with the D40... It's one of the cheapest DSLR kits around. Only limitation for this is that for AF to function, you'd need to use AF-S lenses.

Go read more on the different models and what you really need first.
