Summary: I've used Nikon's for over 50 years starting with the original Nikon F, this is my first digital camera and I'm just starting to learn how to use it. So far I love it, but still have a lot to learn.
Summary: As I am writing this, there are 43 reviews of the D40x that cover just about every feature of this camera (and one very important non-feature: lens compatibility). I agree with most positive reviews: this is a very fast, light, easy to use DSLR with a great battery life.
Affordable , ease of use , great shots on the fly , lightweight and sinple

Summary: if you have a choice between the D40 and the "D40X" , You absolutely and definitely NEED to go with the "D40X" , the follow up "X" is 5 times the camera the D40 is , all the small irritating things the regular D40 has plenty of are happily absent from the "D40X" an absolutely beautiful performer .
Summary: WOW what great pictures it takes. easy to learn, very fast shutter, light weight. i have taken only about 200 photos so far and purchased a 55-200vr lense to go along with the 18-55 lense that came with the camera. together these lenses and camera take the best pictures I have ever taken. EXCELLENT.
Summary: 1st DSLR and It is perfect! love the crisp photos and easy to learn settings. The 40x is greatly priced as well and with it being an older DSLR i have been able to find many upgrades for it very cheap which just makes the purchase even better!!
