    Posted in wrong section earlier tonight. Here it is where it should be. Well, parents got me a Nikon D40 for Christmas and they were about to wrap it, and I asked if I could go take a few shots w/ it. Well, they let me. I got 2 lenses. The outside shots were taken w/ a AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED lense and the Christmas tree shots were taken w/ AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II. All of my photos w/ the new Nikon D40 are HERE in the sets "Backyard Walkaround" and "Christmas Tree." These are my first shots EVER using a Digital SLR camera and just played around w/ it. I have 18 classes I will be taking starting January to learn how to use my D40. I'll post my favorites here. What are your suggestions to help me become a better photographer?

    I was thinkin of gettin the D40 or 40X but figured might as well save up the the D80 instead but all great cameras nonetheless

    I'll give it that. It's just great........sorry, there are so many things I dislike about the D40 though. Still a capable camera that can get professional shots, its just the principles of the camera I disagree with.

    thank you for the comments. i will most likely be shooting a reasonable amount of nature shots and sporting events. what would be the best setup for the following 3 scenarios:

    1. a sunny day out in the woods
    2. basketball for high school/college
    3. soccer for high school/college
