Camera people... thoughts on the Nikon D40?

Nikon makes a better entry-lvl DSLR than the rebel XTi imho. If it'd been out when I got mine I'd be a Nikon guy instead of Canon.
The new XSi rebel probably has the edge though, as it's brand spankin new and the D40's a year old.
Note that the D40's only 6.1MP where the D40x is 10.2mp. For the minor cost difference totally worth going with the D40x.

I have the D40x; I'll bring it with me next time I know you'll be around and you can see what you think. I think it's awesome.

The biggest drawback with the D40 is the lack of focus motor. This is fine if all the lenses you use are internal focusing but you are limiting yourself to a lot of the best lenses. The 50mm f/1.8 or 50mm f/1.4 are both great lenses that are pretty inexpensive...they are virtually worthless on the d40.
