#6. "which Nikon to buy?"
In response to In response to 5

OK, learned from you guys that if I want to use my Sigma 28-105, 3.8-5.6 lens on a Nikon digital SLR I'll need to get a D50/70/70s/80 or D90.

Working with a modest budget (imagine that). I see some 50s & 70s advertised for approx $300 and may go that route.

However, I see the D40 at Sears for $399 with an 18-55 lens. It'd be nice to have new + warranty.

I know I'd have to manually focus the Sigma 28-105, but I'll probably buy a 300mm lens in the near future.

My question is whether the D40 will limit my future lens choices much. Or perhaps drive my future lens prices way up.

Any opinions on whether it's better to go with a 3-4 year old D50 or D70 or just buy the new D40?

Thanks much.
