I was following the thread "Looking for my first DSLR" and got alot of great info. I currently have a Kodak DX 6490 p&s and want to upgrade. I can not stand the lag when taking a picture. I'm leaning towards the Nikon D40 cause the live view does not mean all that much to me. Would it be best to just buy the body itself and then add lenses? I thought about buying the body and the 55mm F/1.8D. Would this be a good start or should I buy the lense that comes with the camera? Thanks for the help. I'm trying to go slow and buy as I can afford it.
