Well - let the flaming threads begin! For those of you that suggest I search - I have. Feel free to ignore this post rather than just suggesting that I search. I'm considering a new DSLR - my first forary into this type of photography. I think I have it pretty well nailed down but want some feedback before I pull the trigger. I'm excited, but honestly intimidated by making this move. These cameras all seem very complicated/sophisticated. I'll likely take some courses regardless of which camera I purchase. I think I have settled in on the Nikon, although I used a friends Canon XTi last night. I liked it that the screen turned off when you held it to your face. That's pretty cool. Anyway, I went and held them both yesterday and I like the D40. I have a newborn son and will use it the most for pictures of him and then some general outdoor scenery shots. Most of my pictures will be taken indoors, but when I am outdoors I want to be able to get good shots of my neices and nephews playing sports etc. My 8 year old nephew is convinced he is the toughest football (American) player on the planet! I would like to get shots of his games without being so intrusive as I am with my P&S. My fear in buying the D40 is that I am buying sunsetting technology - specs that will be out of date soon. When reviewing the difference between the D40 and the D40x, I was prepared to just go with the D40. So I guess my question is....is the D60 worth the upgrade? In other words, is the D40 a dying breed that may be difficult to support in the future? Uses: People (indoors and out) Scenery Action Sports Lenses I'm considering 18-55mm 18-200mm AF-S VR I would also like another super zoom lense for sports shots from the stands So, which body??? Thanks in advance for the help. You folks rock!
