    My 1yr old got a hold of my D40 and pulled it down from my desk falling screen first onto my computer chair leg. Is it possible to go get the screen repaired? Or should i just upgrade the body? (which is cheaper?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Probally better to just upgrade. I'd be willing to bet that it's going to be $200+ to get the screen repaired.

    I did the same thing to my dad's Olympus OM-1 when I was a kid... He was able to superglue it back together. I found it years later and asked what happened and he told me, made me laugh.

    This happened to my old D40 and I bought a screen off ebay for $40 and replaced it myself. It's not totally straightforward, but not much harder than say replacing the battery in an ipod or something. Basic electronic skills FTW.

    hopefully under $500. When i bought the D40 i got the kit lense pkg so the 18-55 & the 55-200 i think.
