    sorry. read the manual but got me a little confused. HAH
    I recently started as well. Of the many great pieces of advice I have gotten, one of the most immediately useful is to get yourself a good 50mm lens. The 1.8D is only about $100, the 1.4D is around $300, and the 1.4G around $500. Check Amazon.

    The differences between them? The 1.8 is a little slower then the 1.4, but it is cheap and light. I used it for a couple months and absolutely loved it. If you arent price sensitive then get the 1.4G (I have that now), its faster and sharper, but the 1.8 is extremely good value for money.

    Also while you are at Amazon, worth getting Bryan Petersons Understanding Exposure. Like $20. It can walk you through the different effects and uses of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO.

    Good luck.

    r3g... Love the lighting/atmosphere captured in that shot

    Polvadis.. Looks like a beautiful setting there. Would've preferred it with the mountains having a lighter colour though than the rather dark green

    Car seems very sharp but the background i wouldve preferred either sharp as well or had a longer shutter speed used to give the car a greater sense of motion, the slight blurring reminds me too much of camera shake (even though it's not). Maybe if you had captured it moments later then the car might've also filled the frame more too.

    Nice picture...But are you sure that's not the ocean rolling in after the big quake? They really want oceanfront property in Phoenix.

    I hate you r3g! lol. I won't use anything above 400 on the 40x and even that is pushing it. Great image BTW!

    Here is an ISO 200 shot from the D40x. There is a bit of noise. Not too terrible, but it's there. This is what happens when the trouble maker won't lay off the bottle!
