    It's an awesome entry level dslr during its time with a flash sync speed of 1/500.
    I saw some users here in the forums planning to upgrade and sell their d40s. Keep looking.

    Here's a simple test from kenrockwell with the d40 still having impressive useful performance.

    I'd rather have a SUPERTELE and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Re: planning to get a d40, any tips?

    I am still using the D40 I got five years ago and I am VERY pleased! I don't really need all the megapixels since most of my shots are just shared online. What I really like about the camera is the flash sync speed as mentioned earlier by Mr. Adrian Fernando. The shutter in the D40 is different from the other DSLRs (I forget what the term is for its shutter) and allows it to shoot passed the 1/500 limit stated in the spec sheet. From personal experience, I have been able to shoot at 1/1250th of a second with my China-made flash triggers. If you shoot a lot with off camera flashes then having that flexibility is really cool! Hope that helps.
    D40, 18-55mm kit lens, 55-200mm VR, 50mm 1.8, tokina 60-300mm MF, Nikkor 35mm 2.8 Ai-S

    I want more primesss.. Hahaha!

    another alternative to the D40, if the sync speed is what you want, would be D70 and/or D70s. Good thing about these cameras is that it allows you also to use non-motorized lenses, same resolution and sync capabilities. I was able to see one being sold at tipidpc for like 13k i guess? with 1k actuations. Not bad if you ask me. Another site would be lenses4less.
