    Yeah OK I will get right on that, 39 mega pixels seems good, and only $30,000

    If you have a lot of lenses with your F-400X, you might look at a used Nikon D50 or D70s.

    Good Idea :bigthumb:

    Depending on the lenses this is your best choice. D40 requires AF-S lenses which you likely dont already have.

    The lens says Nikon AF Nikkor 35-70mm
    1:3.3-4.5

    And I might buy used but I would rather just buy it from the camera store like blacks in the mall and get a warranty with it.

    buy a d80 if you have older nikon lenses.
    otherwise buy the canon.

    I am probably going to go with the canon.
