I shoot with a D700 and a D7000, and I bought a D40 for grins and giggles, as well as a teaching camera to help my girlfriend learn photography. They truly are great and capable cams, especially now that you're seeing some in the $125-200 range. Got mine from another user on this site for only $150 shipped. There's nothing the D40 will do that a comprable Canon won't as far as I know... but if you have access to Nikon glass and want to give it a go, I vote yes.
I know this is an old thread, but hopefully Eric (OP) dont mind if I continue a little bit more.
Now is June 2013, and I am thinking to get the D40 for everyday, bring everywhere camera, etc. Because they are really cheap, good IQ (from what I heard), and 1/500 sync speed. Also want to try/play around with Nikon (Im a Canon user).
