There are always good and bad in buying second hand goods. But when we shed plenty of money so we can use the seconhand goods, than to me it is illogical move. Here is what we heard from reading around. It is wrong move to buy the nikon d40 because it is restricted with newer lenses only. There are milllions of nikon lenses out there waiting to be snatched at bargain prizes. So people spend something like almost $1000 more, or more than $1000 for the camera that can utilizes the old lenses? I don't get it. Ok let see what you think.
