after you have mastered the D90 and still wanting more then get the D7000. Surely by that time D7000 price have already gone down.
D90 (body) price = PhP 36-38K hidalgo price - (don't get the overpriced 18-105mm kit lens, use your D40x 18-55mm kit lens instead - do your research on this)
50mm 1.8D = PhP 5-6K (for your new D90 body only)
AF-S 35mm 1.8G = PhP 10,500 - 11,500 (can also be used on your D40x)
AF-S 50mm 1.8G = PhP 11,500 - 12,500 (can also be used on your D40x)
