"What have you changed since you first bought your D40?"

Hey people,

Just wondering what have you changed since you first bought your D40. I, for one, changed the strap and I know one or two of my buddies changed to the Katz eye focusing screen.

~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~

I've learned that I have alot more to learn...

Hi, I have the d40x. The only thing I did was to upgrade the kit 18-55mm lens to the VR version.

I reprogrammed the function button on the side of the camera near the flash pop-up button to change the ISO with the button pressed and thumb-wheel. This is more useful than the timer, which I kept hitting by accident thinking it was the flash.

I changed the setting to display the camera settings on the screen when I tap the shutter button in addition to the normal info button press.

What is the Katz eye focusing system?

I upgraded to D300s and D7000 and switched my focusing to the button on the back of the camera. Intend to do the same with my D800E.
