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: My camera never worked right from the moment I left the store. Shots would come out overexposed, underexposed, out of focus, you name it. After some frustration and a trip to Japan where every shot turned out garbage, I took the camera back to the store where I purchased it, and they agreed that something was wrong, so back to Nikon it went. It came back working better, but I still don't think it is quite right.
Summary: I was in the beds but all the time price well be same in the shops , thats meaning is not realy bid this is my openion , they send for you another one pay mor than you , I pay more after that I see the price is not realy but must be the price to be cheap.
Summary: Let me start by saying I am a full-time professional photographer. I shoot purely with Nikon, right now I work with a D300, D200, and I use a D70 for around-the-house photos. D70 gives pretty good quality, and to must people(non professionals), superb quality. It isn't quite the quality of the D300, but is much less bulky which is why it is my go-to camera for home. The D40 is really quite terrible in my opinion.
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.
