Excerpt: I bought a Nikon camera and one of the lens didnt work correctly so I sent it to their repair office in Mellville, NY and the customer service is alwful. They lost my lens and said I sent them a stolen lens will not produce a police record. Will not return phone calls, emails or nothing will not even admit that they received my lens when I have a copy from the post office saying they did.
Excerpt: I tried out my new Nikon D40 DSLR with the 18-55 G ED II lens. The camera overexposes the pictures taken with or without the flash on. Photos are can be displayed differently on different monitors. On my home monitors, which are old 17" CRT's, the pictures look fine because the monitor doesn't have enought brightness and contrast. On my work monitor, the pictures looked "washed out" no matter how I adjust the monitor.
Summary: [...]I went ahead and ordered the D40 two lens kit from Ritz and all went smoothly. The camera arrived and I eagerly unpacked the box, charged the battery and attached the 18-55mm lens. First impressions were not very good. The camera is light, as are the lens, cheapishly so. The camera had a toyish feel and the 18-55mm lens felt grainy working the zoom in and out. Even so, I am quick to start shooting at everything in sight to test it out.
Cons: Loud, Slow Focus, Toy like feel, Very entry level DSLR
