Hi all, I'm new to this forum and photography in general. I found this site while researching the D40x camera.

I would be best classified as a beginning photographer, I've taken quite a few photos in my lifetime so far, but never used anything more than point and shoot type digital and film cameras.

My wife has suggested (and agreed!) to get me a Nikon D40x for Christmas.

Through my research so far, I think the D40x is the best bang for the buck for my budget.

Is it easy enough to use for a beginner? Although Nikon is claiming it is, I'd like to hear of real world experiences instead.

I have seen some absolutely stunning photographs taken with this camera, but is it unreasonable to expect that I may not get the same results? Is it more about style and experience etc?

My main goal is to learn all I can about photography and proper use of settings for great looking pictures. I think the D40x will be sufficient enough for my needs (I'm not going to be doing a lot of photographs, just casually) and I can always upgrade later if I decide it's not enough
