    Looking to buy a nikon D40 or D40x in excellent condition with roughly 10k shutter releases (the lower, the better).

    Willing to spend $300.

    Thanks guys!

    Well, I work at a pawn shop and we just recently pulled a Nikon D40 and put it on our shelf for sale for $299. It includes an 18-55mm lens, camera strap, and battery. I don't know how much it was used before it was pawned, so I couldn't really give you an estimate on the number of shutter releases it's endured.

    We are actually located in Southington, Connecticut... but a quick mapping with Google Earth shows that you're only about a two-hour drive away.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    I truly considered buying it myself, but the 6MP sensor is just too small for my taste... I can't be cropping images down to 3 or 4 megapixels. My D5000 spoils me with its 12MP resolution, and I think that if I got a nice shot with the D40, I would just end up cursing myself for not getting the shot with my D5000 and milking it for 6 more megapixels.

    Bear in mind, the camera we have is the original D40... not the higher-res D40x.

    If you are interested in getting a 18-55mm VR lens, let me know. I live next door to you in Belmont.

    Hah, I would *love* a D5000 over a D40, D40x, or D60, but I don't think I would be able to find one for $300 on here. I would, however, be willing to pay a bit more for the D5000 over the others.
