    I am planning on upgrading my D40x to the D90. How do the AF systems compare in the two cameras? I see the D90 uses the CAM 1000, and the D40x uses the CAM 350. I have no idea the difference between the two and I was hoping someone could enlighten me.

    With the d90, you don't need the AF-s lenses
    Its got the motor inside of the body, unlike the d40x.
    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I am also switching over from my d40x as soon as i sell it, anyone interested?

    The D40x has three focus points. The D80 and D90 have 11, giving the AF system more data and giving you more options for manually setting the point you want the system to grab onto. I shot a D40x for a few weeks before getting my D80. At first the D80 seemed to have too much going on in the viewfinder. Once I got used to it, I loved it.
