    will 3rd party battery grip affect the camera performance?? nikon doesn't produce any battery grip for D40, yet I read in other forum, there are many 3rd party products being used in Malaysia. they are Ansmann and YXTM.

    I used a couple 3rd party ones for XT's and didn't like them. The shutter button felt very fake, which feels worse than it sounds. It's weird when you have to hit a button harder than the one you're used to. Also, the grip started peeling. Anyway, if that's your only option, then I'm sure you'll be alright though. Just check reviews & do your research (as you're doing) but keep some of these things in mind.

    I had a Targus grip on my XT, and I loved it. Made the camera feel a lot better, and the buttons felt fine. Didn't negatively affect the camera in any way.

    Yep, that's bull****. Just don't get a crappy one. I definitely recommend the Targus.
