Strengths: Fast operation, good menus, compatible with all Nikon F lenses, lightweight.
Weakness: Limited choice of AF lenses.
I bought a factory-refurbished body for $275 from Adorama and picked up the 18 - 105 VR lens at the Pasadena CA Bargain Camera Show for $185. This is a terrific system for under 500 bucks! Before I got the lens, I started shooting with some of my manual-focus Nikon lenses - compatibility was a big reason for choosing this model.

I bought a factory-refurbished body for $275 from Adorama and picked up the 18 - 105 VR lens at the Pasadena CA Bargain Camera Show for $185. This is a terrific system for under 500 bucks! Before I got the lens, I started shooting with some of my manual-focus Nikon lenses - compatibility was a big reason for choosing this model. Manual focusing is facilitated by a focus indicating light in the viewfinder - it's a little touchy, but when the light's on, you're in focus! Shot-to-shot time is so fast that it is simple to bracket exposures shooting in manual mode with the manual-focus lenses by turning the aperture ring. I'd been resisting buying a DSLR, but I'm having so much fun with this camera that my films shooting days may be over.

Strengths: Nikon,Lense Quality,Instant On,Lighter weight,Flash Distance, Focus Time,Double Exposure, Color reproduction, SD Card storage with capable with newer high capacity chipset. Excellent Burst of 100+ pic
Weakness: Current lense options not marketed to consumers effectively. Dedicated battery. Needs to be Lithium AA's instead. You get 450-500 shots with flash.
Get It,Charge It Up,Shoot It. Don't Like It email me. We (Family) use it with the Epson Stylus 1400 printer that prints a 19*13 photo and needed (mostly wanted) a new camera for the printer. Looked at Canon (was Canon fan) Loved their film cameras! Have Sony merchandise; playstation,TV,camcorder,dvd recorder which is slow as ice melting when formatiing discs.

You hardly find a better camera, even regarding the price
Strengths: What do you want to hear? It's a NIKON. Just point and click and shoot worldchampion fotos. There are not many companies that give you this certain touch of quality ...
Weakness: If you know what you want, then none. You cannot make videos, because there is the unavoidable mirror ;-)
To make a long story short:
I was looking for a ver, very, very long time for a good camera at a 'reasonable' price, comparing, testing ...
I got this one now and the only thing besides shooting fotos is smile.

Strengths: Clear picture and easy to use
Weakness: charger only for US. I purchased it as a gift to a friend in China, he has to buy a voltage converter
My friend likes the D40x very much, but wish it is with 18-200 mm lens instead. Overall the camera is very good SLR if it's the first SLR. My next purchase would be Nikon D80 with 18-200 mm lens.

I returned Canon DigitalRebel XTi and bought Nikon D40x - this is a keeper!
Strengths: Instant start-up. Very fast auto focus. Rapid continuous shooting (great to capture kids in action). Nikon 18-55mm kit lens better than Canon's kit lens. Supports USB mass storage interface.
Weakness: Only 3 auto-focus points. Auto white balance poor for indoor shooting (need to remember to switch to "incadescent" manually). No hard buttons for white balance and/or ISO selection.
I initially bought a Canon Digital Rebel XTi kit. After using it for 2 weeks, the deficiency of Canon's kit lenses and the very poor design of the USB interface on the Digital Rebel started to really annoy me. So I returned Canon and bought a Nikon D40x. What a difference! Before buying the Nikon I thought that Canon was a higher end product. Now I feel totally the opposite. I really like the...

I initially bought a Canon Digital Rebel XTi kit. After using it for 2 weeks, the deficiency of Canon's kit lenses and the very poor design of the USB interface on the Digital Rebel started to really annoy me. So I returned Canon and bought a Nikon D40x. What a difference! Before buying the Nikon I thought that Canon was a higher end product. Now I feel totally the opposite. I really like the ergonomics of the D40x much better. The hand grip and the location of all controls are perfect for both me and my wife. We also found that even though Nikon D40x has only 3 focus points, as opposed to multiple focus points on the Canon EOS 400D, Nikon does not appear to have the same problem with frequent "out of focus" shots that we had with the Canon. We take most of our short in either programmed mode or in aperture priority mode. Also, the included Nikon's kit lens appears to produce quite a bit less chromatic aberration and less distortion at wide angle than we had with Canon. Nikon D40x with the 18-55 kit lens is a great value package for the price, and I don't think any of the other current cameras come close. We use ours daily and are definitely going to keep it!
