Before I start sorry if there is already a thread for this, I tried searching. So I have been an owner of a digital camera for a long time, and film SLR's I even have an old Olympus 0M-10. But I have never concidered getting a digital SLR, which is what I am thinking of getting now. I have thought about Cannons, but I feel a Nikon would be better as I tried a D50 a while back, but now theres a D40 is it any good? I do not have enough money for a D80 atm, but I could save up, if the D40 does not fit the bill. My choice of the D40, is that its relatively cheap, chunky yet not heavy, and seems to have a high quality about it. Would this assumptions be right? Thank you for any help people give me.
