I have a huge collection of old pre-Ai Nikkors which won't fit my D90/D700 so decided to purchase a cheap D40 body for some fun. So far so good!

Sweet! I actually went the other direction and bought a F2S recently for my pre-AI lenses. Realistically I'm sure the D40 is more practical these days, but I'm old enough to remember when the F2 was the "it" camera and I always wanted one.

Plus, now you will get to change your sensor every 36 shots! (And every one of the sensors you can use will be designed to work with those older lenses.)
