Rick,

This is an "X" version of an existing camera. The title of the D1 and later D2 Forum was never changed when X and H versions of those models were released.

Can't we just enjoy this announcement without having a moan...?

Now when D2hs is not with us any more - why not to make a D40h with Nikon 4.1 MP sensor?

Any chance that there will be battery grip (3rd party) for the D40 body now that the D40X has made this body into a real player against the bigger boys?

So, let's buy a small, light, camera, and stick a chunk of plastic on it to make it bigger, heavier, and uglier?

I am absolutely gutted about this. I bought a D40 last week! Now I know why most of the shops didn't have any in stock. I nearly didn't get it because of the 6 megapixels and the lack of 100 ISO, but decided to get one on the spur of the moment. How I wish I'd waited!! Anyone want to buy a nearly new D40?!

If it's only a week old, you can probably return it.

Ken--don't be upset......are you a professional? Are you making constant prints above 13 x 19?...If not don't get caught up in the megapixel game. I seriously doubt you'd be getting better pics with the new 'x". ....sorry I don't buy used...I have a D200 but I'm adding a second smaller body for light carrying on my trips to Europe--seriously take a look at the first reviews over a PopPhoto etc...the NOISE levels of the new 'x' version- they are HIGHER with the new camera at 400, 800 and 1600...dropping from iso 200 to 100 is a minus not a plus...

As for me--I just ordered my 'back up' from Amazon--just did so while I can still get it--the 'old' D40...I want, need LOW noise for interior work (old churches where flashes are forbidden....)

Don't fret over the meg jump--its about marketing to unknowing buyers...you made the right call--be happy. If you do out grow the 40 and print big etc...in a yr you'll want an '90' or '300' etc and the money saved over not buying the more expensive 'x' version will come in handy.

Don't worry about this. Unless you plan really large enlargements, 6Mp is enough. I have made razor sharp A3 prints from a 5 Mp Canon point-n-shoot and bigger from my D70(with 6Mp). In spite of having a D200 I still shoot happily with my D70 rather than changing lenses onto the D200 all the time.

You get more photographic milage out of your lenses anyway, digital camera bodies come and go.

So now that the D40x is here, what is the point of spending more money on the D80? It seems that the only advantage is the additional focusing points and the LCD. That's a $200 difference.

Here in the UK, the D80 body can be had for £530 (or possibly less). The same dealer is taking D40x kit orders at £599. I know which camera I'd be buying if I was spending that kind of money, and it doesn't have an x in its name.

Actually, the LCD on the D40x is the same 2.5" one used on the D80. However, I think the real difference (not necessarily advantage) is the wider range of adjustments on the D80...particularly the more "direct access" to features/adjustments due to more fixed buttons on the D80.

Me...I'm really just looking for a P&S that will not have the long delay between shots. I don't care to mess with all those adjustments. Just give the ability to point and shoot quickly between shots and give me good pictures right out of the camera and I'm good to go. So for me, the D40 or D40x is perfect.

There is quite a bit more than that, for example the ability of the D80 to AF with "screwdriver" lenses...

this is a very good commercial idea of nikon. Make a compact line of camera's with each different features adjusted to the needs of the customers - and thus at minimum development and advertising costs.
If the image quality is similar to D80/D200, it is similar to that of D2x. That is quite something for this price.

good thinking nikon!
(i'll stick to my d200, the camera which made me concentrate on the subject and my relation to it)

listen carefully ..

Reading the first review, one of the first quotes I see is this:

"As with the D40, it is not possible to place non-CPU lenses on the Nikon D40x."

This is 100% false. I have done it every single day since January 1 with well over 10,000 clicks.

Hey Cameron4,
I'm glad to hear you good news. I purchased a D40 a week ago. I bought it on line and had it sent next day delivery. I'm 58 years old and I couldn't sleep the night before either! You would think that maturity would temper the excitment some, but NO! I'm was still like a kid waiting for Santa I know your going to love your Nikon as much as I do mine. It will open up a whole new world of fascination and beauty. Be sure and keep us updated. Some pics would be nice.

What do you mean? Are you saying I can use my AF lenses from my old N70 with the D40x.. Cause the local shop said I had to get the D80 if I want to use older lenses.

Also can someone really tell me the difference in functionalies I loose out on if I buy the D40x then the D80?

THANKS,

David

Hello David,

the D40x requires lenses with internal focus motors for using AF. All other lenses can be used only in MF.

Compatible lenses for using AF are Nikon's AF-S lenses and Sigma HSM lenses.

Check out this anchored thread at the top of the forum for a list of current lenses that will work fully with the D40x.

But is it worth the trouble then just going with the D80 that will work already with my older AF Lenses and just getting the 18-55mm for Wide angle shots?

David,

It would be easier to answer, when we know what lenses you already have.

The best way is to fill out your profile.

#35. "RE: D40x Vs D80"
In response to Reply # 33



I just couldn't take it anymore:

1) The Lack of Sleep
2) The nawing in my Gut
3) The hole in my Pocket.

I bought the D80 with the 18-135 and Hopefully get the 18-200 Upgrade by Xmas time.

Thanks everyone for your moral support and decision making ....


David.

Ok so then what I take away from research is that:

D80 - More in line with being a True SLR and flexibility.

D40x - More for the beginner and less thought process (equilevant to the Rebel Xti sorta of thing).

Very cool. The only problem is that you will find yourself desiring more lenses, a flash, more memory, a bag, a uv filter, a polarizing filter..... Need I say more? }>

I bought my D40 Kit a month ago (500 Euro) here in Portugal and I´ve never taken so many good pictures (since then I took more than 500 pictures). I´m completelly fool about my new SLR. It´s fantastic! Very good results. With good handling and very good menus easy to understand and configure. The graphical mode is very intuitive. 2.5" LCD monitor it´s hudge and we can see all details in pictures with the zoom button. I´m using also my old analog 35-135 AF CPU nikkor lense and the results were very good.
