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.
