This is why I would go with the D50. It has the ability to AF with older AF-D lens since it has a in camera AF motor vs the D40 which does not. This for a beginner helps keep costs down because you can use all kinds of older AF-D lens and have full function and auto focus. Plus my D50 just keeps going my daughter uses it now but it is a solid performer. I'm not saying the D40 is bad but I just think the D50 had more features.
