    Im looking at a D40 to purchase w/ the 18-55mm kit lens. Right now I have a D70s with the 18-70mm kit lens. One of them is going to be mine and one will be my GFs as a birthday gift... I use mine a lot more and she would tinker around and use the camera less than me. Bottom line, I want the better camera for myself. Which would you rather have, the D40 or D70s?

    I have a D70s and I would look at the D40 as a downgrade. Less choices as far as lenses I can use, 3 AF points (If Im not mistaken), and the size is for someone with abnormally small hands (or a girl). I'd say, keep the D70s and upgrade lenses until you outgrow the body...when you need a new body, you'll know it.
