Hello, So its been a good year or so that I have been interested in getting more into digital photography. Up to now, I have been doing photography mostly as a hobby, and want to continue it as a hobby, but at a higher level. Currently, I use a 7.2mp Point and shoot. It has been a good camera, but as I progressed it became more and more limiting. After a few months of research, I decided that I should buy an SLR, the Nikon D40 to be exact. While browsing some photography forums and such, lots of comments about the D40 have made me turn away from it a bit, or at least reconsider what I am doing. The main thing that put me off was the lack of on board auto-focus motor. This might concern me... I do have an old Nikon SLR somewhere in storage, with some old lenses that I might want to use. Moving on. If I do decide with the D40... I found what I believe to be a good deal at bhphotovideo.com. Here it is: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/471716-REG/Nikon_25420_D40_SLR_Digital_Camera.html Nikon D40 with 18-55mm lens (Would I want another lens? if so what one?) Accessories 4GB SD card Softcase bag (I might not need... could just use a backpack) Extended 2 year warranty (just in case) Thats roughly $650 with a new D40 Now, if I was not to get the D40... what should I get? I want to stay away from used cameras, unless they are refurbished by the company that produces them. Thank-you very much!
