    I dont understand what you are asking? Sounds like you realized you need to do research on what you have and how to use it, photography isnt easy, its not something someone can just point and shoot with amazing results.

    well for starters if you want help, post up what you have, body, lens, accessories, and people may be able to help direct you to a successful path and maybe keep some stuff on the side for upgrades later :)

    With Nikon, the joy is most stuff is upward compatible...
    I had a D40x and had 18-135 and 50 f/1.8 (manual focus), now I have a D80 and the 50 couldn't be any better and it's like a whole new life for the lens i already loved

    I responded to your other thread, many times and you ignored my posts. heres my last try.

    1. By no means did you make a mistake, the D40 is an excellent camera and you can use many lenses on it but the older ones wont autofocus.

    2. Why do you think you made a mistake? What lens do you want that wont be able to autofocus? You havent mentioned one lens that you wanted.

    3. The D40 is a great starter camera, you can use it for a while and then upgrade to another body, you shouldnt be unpleased just because of the lens compatibility.

    4. Learn to use your camera, not write on forums how you've made a photography mistake. Learn to shoot it rather than whining about it. You'll be suprised how capable your D40 is.

    If I get ignored im not responding to your threads again, im just trying to help you out. :thumbup:

    It's not limited to lenses. You can't buy a DSLR and think that every lens is going to cost $100. This isn't a P&S you get one lens and you can go from kinda wide to kinda telephoto. You have to spend some money. 35 1.8 is 200 and will AF 50 1.4D is around 300. There are plenty of lenses out there. I mean tons of lenses to use. Think about saving up a little if you're actually serious about photography.

    Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. Read the book, learn to use what you have. Cameras and the rest of the equipment only help to improve on one's ability. They will not give you ability.

    Personally I wouldnt use the UV filter. It can give you god awful flares multicoated or not.

    I have a D40 as well and I do not find its limiting me at all yet. I plan on investing in some nice lenses before I upgrade my body. When you get you're next accessory try and decide if you are going to want to upgrade it in the near future, if the answer is yes you are probably better off saving up a little more money and getting something better. I learned this the hard way with my car audio :)

    The good thing about camera gear is it seems to hold its value very well.
