In a way, yes. It won't autofocus and you might be limited to manual metering as well, but the D40 and D60 are more accomodating of older lenses than most of the more expensive Nikon cameras.

I am really considering buying a dSLR camera - what are the main differences between the Sony a200 and this Nikon D40? I want a camera that is going to stand the test of time.

What's the difference in price between these 2 cameras?

Are lenses for the Nikon D40 more expensive due them have to be AF lenses?

Thanks for the heads-up.

Just done some checking on Nikons web site, it seems it doesnt have a buit in motor to drive the lense in the camera body so only lenses with built in motors will work on AF.

It looks like a feature targeting the low-end cameras with smaller compact bodies, as even the very lastest bodies have the built in motors for older and current AF lenses.

No the camera does not have a built in motor to drive the normal AF lenses so it has to use lenses which have a motor built into them adding to the cost

Just make sure its uk stock or you will not get your cashback !

Really? I thought the D70/D80 were very accomodating of the older lenses. Certainly my D50 will take anything that I can throw at it - I've yet to try a lens that didn't work perfectly. I have a really old 500mm fixed length lens that is absolutely ace.

I think there are people who go around expiring deals because they don't like them...... should get a suspension for that if it's proven.

It's not really a feature as such. It's Nikon cutting features to keep the cost of the camera low.

Buy the Nikon. Nikon make cameras and Sony make TV's and consoles and so on. If Nikon went into the TV business would you buy one of their TV's over a Sony one? ;)

Not really. You can print stuff out @ 20x30" and it looks fantastic. My D70s has an identical sensor and 20x30" prints look excellent unless you have your 2cm away from the print looking for grain. Just remember that DSLR's have physically larger sensors so you don't get the noise which is so common with compact digital cameras. My wife has a Nikon S200 compact which is 8mp IIRC yet my 6mp D70s takes far far far better pictures purely in terms of noise and colour.

Buying on the basis of MP is a very bad way of chosing between cameras.

It isn't quite as simple as that though, is it? Konica-Minolta's old digital camera division (including DSLR's) was transferred to Sony a couple of years ago remember :)

To be honest, most people buying a SLR/DSLR will buy Nikon or Canon, I've never heard any compelling reasons to buy any other brand.

Of course. But Minolta were always an also-ran when it came to SLR's and DSLR's. Like you say there's no reason not to buy Nikon or Canon. Most camera shops worldwide will have a good stock of Nikon and Canon lenses as well. Sony/Minolta lenses? It'll be a lottery.

agreed..I've already had the olympus e510 and e410 this year and sold them both/... I 've gone back to my old bronica as i can't find a dslr to match that....other than convenience wise...any suggestion for under 1000 stg?

I'm thinking about the eos 5d anyone got one of those?

Well medium and large format cameras are in a different league :)

Personally I'd buy a D300.

Cracking camera. Cousin's hubby got one and my uncle too. So impressed, that I got one too with the £30 cashback. Now the father-in-law is getting one for his birthday (he doesn't know).

6.1 Megapixels doesn't matter, because image quality is so good. Best pictures are ones taken outside in natural light, IMO.

Nice idea, but I'd love to know where you would get a D300 and a lens from for under £1000? given that the body alone costs around £950....

Amazon has a hidden price promise that if you buy something and it drops in price within 30 days you can get the difference back. That means if you did any shopping there; you should check if the price has dropped in the sales, and if it has - claim the money back.

How do you get it back?

Amazon won't do this automatically, you'll need to go back and check the prices of the goods you've bought by logging into your account.

Simply visit your account and look at each invoice from the last thirty days and click on each item to view it's current price. Compare this to the price you paid and if there's a difference, copy down the order number and go to the 'Return and Refunds Contact Form' page to report it.

Step by step instructions

* Log into your Amazon account
* Click on 'view orders placed in the last 6 months'
* Copy the Amazon.co.uk order number:
* Click on the item to see if the price has dropped
* Click on 'Help' followed by Contact Us, 'Customer Service'
* Once you've found the right order click on Contact Amazon, copy in the order reference number and explain you'd like a refund as the price has dropped.

Cheers Hotshot

They didn't say they needed lenses included.

They sound like someone who is very interested in their photography so perhaps for them a few hundred pounds for a couple of good lenses is nothing.

Just to add another thumbs up for the D40, I've had mine for about 4 months now and while I'm still learning how to use it properly I'm getting some awesome (if I do say so myself!) photos out of it. There will always be arguments over which make/model of camera is best but at this price you won't be disappointed - just be aware news lenses and a decent flash will be a little more expensive than you might first think but you do get what you pay for with this stuff.

just an example - taken 2 days after I got the camera :)
