Hello, So exams are over, Christmas is over, and still no DSLR. The time has finally come for me to start looking at some of my options, and to start researching about DSLR's. I really love photography, and would like to improve in it also. I know an SLR won't make me automatically a good photographer, but with a standard point and shoot I didn't have enough adjustable features that I would like (dont ask me what features I need, I have no clue what they do or are). The camera that I am looking at purchasing is the Nikon D40, or possibly the D40x. Here are some questions. Why is the D40x better (features, mp, etc.) Would it be a good purchase for somebody entering SLR photography, or would the D40 be better. When starting off, is it better to have only 1 lens, I know a bunch of companies sell their models with a 15-55mm, but there is also the Nikkor 55-200mm, which looks pretty decent. Where is a good place to buy a DSLR (preferably in Canada) Thats all the questions for now. Thanks for the help.
