Hi Louis and welcome to the D50 family!!!
I can't speak to the differences between the D50 and the 40s, I can just tell you that after having a D50 for about a year, I haven't had a moment when I've said, "Boy, I wish I had a D40/x instead of this "old" D50. The best advice I've gotten has been that any time that I spend second guessing what I have is time that I'll later on realize I could have been taking pictures.

I started with lenses from my film camera (one new nikon and one ebay 3rd party), bought a new nikon lense, and recently a new 3rd party lense. In the order of how much I use them: 1. $250 Nikon (new); 2. $60 Quantaray (ebay); 3. $95 Nikon (new); and 4. $400 Tokina (new).

One of my favorite shots was taken with a 70-300 Quantaray that I got on ebay for next to nothing. You'll find it here: http://picasaweb.google.com/jnosacka/JohnNosacka/photo#5061330876700630482 .

If you want a new lens, get one. But IMHO, don't spend too much timeon researching equipment. You could be learning how to shoot and the actual shooting.

Again, welcome, and click the shutter as much as you can!
