    I have a D40, and today I purchased another used one for a friend of mine. I have been shooting on it for about an hour now, and there is something that has been bothering me that I cant quite figure out. When I push the shutter button halfway to autofocus, it will autofocus, but as soon as i release the button, the info screen will pop up. My D40 does not do this, and I was wondering if there is a way to override this setting?

    Yup, there's a setting. First make sure you're in FULL menu mode (Menu button -> Setup menu -> CSM/Setup menu -> Full). Then go Menu button -> Setup menu -> Auto shooting info. Choose each option, and turn it off. That should od it for you.
