    Five years ago, just before my Daughters wedding, I bought a Nikon D-100. I've
    loved the camera. But now I'm looking at these new D-40 and D-60 models. Besides
    the nearly double megapixels, how much more am I getting if I bought one of the
    new ones? And would I be able to use the lenses from the D-100 on the newer
    models? I spent $2,000 on the D-100 and a lens five years ago. It almost hurts
    to see a camera with twice the resolution for one third the price. Thanks.

    The bottom of the range Nikon models (D40, D40x and D60) don't have an
    autofocus motor in the body, so are only capable of autofocus with
    lenses having a focus motor built in (AF-S, AF-I). You should be able
    to manual focus though, with a focus confirmation indicator.

    Thanks. In fact, I do very little printing, just archiving all my pictures on
    disks. The printing I do has yet to be bigger than 8 x 10. I'm not a
    professional (obviously). Just an average guy who likes to take pictures but
    likes good equipment for all my endeavors. So I treated myself to the Nikon for
    my Daughters wedding. It's actually my third Nikon, the two previous being 35mm
    cameras. I still have my 6006 which I haven't used since getting the SLR
    digital. I guess I'm good with the D-100 then.
