I’ve just had a birthday (with an 0 in it). I had a great evening, and an excellent walk on the downs (thanks to all who joined me along the way). And I acquired the Nikon D40. It’s small, light, responsive, incredibly intuitive, easy to use, and an enormous amount of fun. Plus I can use lenses from my Nikon f401 (as long as I don’t need autofocus). With 6MP, a huge (2.5″) LCD screen and 2.5fps continuous shooting, it’s a great little DSLR for amateurs like me.
