Well, I did a lot of research but I also let being frugal get in the way when I bought the D40. The camera does most of what I want but I really find the menu system a hindrance. My memory is good enough that I can memorize all the buttons on the D80 and the like and pushing buttons to set things up is much quicker than the menu system. If I am doing landscape photography then it's no big deal except that it's tedious but when snapping shots of the grandkids I think the menu really gets in the way. I really don't want to loose a couple a hundred bucks selling a 3 month old D40 (that frugal thing again ) or I'd be seriously looking at a D80 or 200. Anyone else with the same thoughts?
