Summary: After providing the documentation that Nikon requested to demonstrate that my D40X was not a gray market product, Nikon returned my camera to me unrepaired leaving me totally stranded with a D40x paperweight. This is a nice camera, but Canon's customer service must certainly be better. Get the Canon.
Summary: This was my first digital SLR and when I first got it about a year ago it was great. However, the door for the SD card is easily broken and was! The main circuit board has just blown and would cost £190 to repair. Time to look for something else. Overall this is a really easy camera to use and gives good pictures but don't expect it to last very long!
Summary: This camera is only for the amateur that wants something a bit better than a point and shoot. It does deliver lovely clear pictures but..... I have had my D40x for one year and 20 days and the main circuit board has blown taking the flash circuit with it. I have treated the camera like a new born baby since day one and it has never had any drops or knocks.
