Ok, I think I have come to a conclusion. I'll get the Nikon D40 w/ kit lens (good,since it has VR) & a Nikkon 50mm f/1.8 for now. I had forgotten the 'spend-more-on-a-good-lens-than-the-body' rule...

Budget- Max. $550 or...(see below)
Size- Doesn't matter at all.
Megapixels- Anything above 8 will do.
Optical zoom- telephoto/ ultrazoom
