    Well, I decided to start carrying a DSLR when I go on my normal travels for work. Had been carrying a Nikon Coolpix 8700. So, I just ordered a D40x for work travels. I didn't want to spend alot as it could get broken or stolen. And I think the D40x fit the bill. Hoping it will be a bit better than the coolpix in low light.

    Now need to decide on a lens. Not looking for absolute best. Think I am going to get one of the all in one lenses. Probably third party lens to keep cost down. Was thinking of Tamron 18-270. Just want the camera, 1 lens, and 1 flash to carry.

    Have D300's (his and her's now) for normal home and personal travel use.

    Can you tell us the company and/or details of the coverage?

    I'd definately spend $4/mo to cover my stuff...
