    Any D40 owners out there. I am considering this camera for purchase. Any
    feedback would be great.

  4. I decided against a D40[x] and bought a D80 instead, mostly because I
    couldn't get my fingers sorted on the D40. It was just too small and there
    was always one finger left that didn't fit anywhere.
    Of course that's just me and your experience may be totally different, but
    what I strongly recommend is that you actually hold the camera and try a few
    dummy shots. It may have the greatest of features, but if it doesn't feel
    right in your own hands, then you won't be happy with it.

    I bought a D40X in September, while my D200 was in surgery (gravity attack off a
    tripod), and havent regretted it for a moment. I had considered a D80 instead,
    but there didnt seem to be enough offered for the huge price difference between
    D80 & D40X. My Tamron 90mm macro lens wont AF with the D40X, but it's a simple
    lens to work in manual mode, anyway. It meters just fine; just no AF.

    Since the return of the D200 from intensive care, I find I leave the 18-200VR
    lens on the D40X, and keep the D200 for using with the macro. I will revise
    this when I get around to replacing the lens that got smashed, but I seriously
    doubt I'll ever regret buying the D40X. I thought it would be a simple backup
    camera that spends most of it's life in the bag, but I find I use it a lot. AND,
    it takes some great pics.

    The D200 is a great camera, but the D40X has performed beyond my expectations
    for a budget DSLR.
    VERY happy with it.
