    if you're looking for OT's opinion they ALL hate the D40 with the exception of 1 or 2 people.:rofl:

    never do anything to impress OT you'll hate yourself later.

    that said my opinion is New is always better than used. I like knowing where my stuff has been and what's been done to it

    I'd go for the cheaper option for two reasons:

    1) Keep more money in my pocket for other gear
    2) I despise the d40.

    Unless the d50 has been completely abused or if it has been used a lot (meaning like 50,000+ exposures) then I'd grab the d50 and some extra stuff with it.

    also, does either come with a lens?
