I feel that you are not ready yet.
Try looking at cameras such as the Canon's Powershot series.

There's a G9 which comes with a hot-shoe to expand your creativity needs.

EDIT: Ready in a sense that you do not really need the camera. You have to consider costs for lenses as well.

Why not just get D40? It's as good as D40x except the lower pixel count, and a good 200 cheaper. You get to play with sync speed over 1/500s as well.

olympus system is the cheapest in the market IIRC. previously KM is also cheaper than Nikon but after Sony bought over, I'm not too sure.

anyway, this is in the wrong forums.. all price related threads should be started in the consumer section no?

Well...how do you look at it now when you know the D40 and D40X share THE ABOUT SAME SIZE IMAGE CAPTURE SENSOR? It means...the additional 4mp is done by interpolating (?) though they say they added more pixel sensor to it. Just like what Fuji did with their digital PnS. They did not use a diffeence sensor to put in that extra 4mp as far as a number of article I read. The builtin hardware take the 6mp image and add "pixels" to it. So is it worth paying abit more for the D40X?

Okay I just recall it was a D80 sensor they use but the slight size decrease (23.6 x 15.8 mm to 23.7 x 15.6 mm) could not make that big a diff ?

Just get a Sony A100. Cheap nowadays, you get anti-shake with all lenses and you also get autofocus with all lenses, which the D40X can't give you.

any1 have any idea how much does the D40 Kit sells? 1st hand cheap cheap
$980 for D40x if I am not wrong. You consider the K100D super too which is around the same price range. Same goes for Sony A100.

Have a little search about the other equipment like price of lenses for future expansion before you decide would be better. :)
