Jan'2012: going to be obsolete?
higher image quality
faster speed (quicker to take image)
often won't have Digital Video Camera capability - which I actually find rather handy
dump bad photos
take scads of pictures (e.g. at wedding) without having to juggle rolls of film
Will a Nikon take my existing Nikon lenses (regular and zoom)?
yowka the fancy ones cost $3k-$5k!
the D40K ($800 body-only) only supports AutoFocus with some lenses (hmm, need to check what I have)
I'm probably going to buy the D40 with the 18-55mm lens ($480), then buy the 55-200mmVR lens ($225) to go with it.
- Nov11'2007 - bought the D40x instead. A little more expensive, but more defensible to Jihi by having more mps without paying all the way up for the D80.
