Hi,

I'm a complete beginner to photography looking to get a start with an entry-level DSLR and classes at my university. After reading tons of good things about the Nikon D40, I think I'm ready to buy the kit with just the 18-55mm lens, the price for which seems to be about $470 or so.

However, as a poor college student, I'm trying to be as efficient with my money as possible, and I'm hoping to avoid a situation where I buy the D40 and then the price drops soon after when Nikon releases a new line of cameras. Should I be worried about this at all, or should I just go ahead and buy the camera now? Thanks in advance.
