No I'm not buying one, I've already got myself a XTi. I work in the photo lab at a drug store and a customer that is one of our regulars brought in her D40 and asked me to show her how to use the camera since she has no idea how to work with changing the aperature and shutter speed. I played with it for a little bit and my first impression was the pictures aren't all that detailed. She wants to shoot dog shows, right now just for fun but down the road perhaps for a little extra sidecash. She also got a 70-200. My impression is that the camera won't be adequate enough for detail from a distance with only 6 MP, but it could just be me. The other thing that pissed me off was that once you took a picture the LCD screen wouldn't come back on, and the LCD screen stays on when looking through the viewfinder. I'm fairly sure there's some option to fix the first complaint but probably not the second. Since I've only ever dealt with Canon's, I'm hardly one to tell her if this camera is worth keeping or not. She has a 10-day trial period on it and I told her I'd do a little research on the camera, who better to ask than OTAP? Any help is mucho appreciated guys.
