Hello,
I've come across this offer and I don't have a clue if it's an ok offer or not and if the camera is worth it (but from your posts I gather it's pretty good..)

NIKON D40 ZOOM KIT:
Camera
+18-55 lens
+ DX55-200mm
+ case

PRICE: 749 Euro, about $999

what do you think?

thankyou
:)

I thought you were choosing between an XTi/400D and S5 IS last time you posted...

The D40 and the 55-200 lens both have had follow ups (D40X and 55-200 VR), and the price is not something amazing.

The D40 is the most feature-less DSLR you can get though, with its 6mp, 3 AF point system, no exposure bracketing, no mirror lock up, no depth of field button, no decent RAW convertor, no internal AF motor that other Nikon DSLRs have.

I'd get an XTi/400D instead.

I think I'm getting the bug for it!
