Now that Nikon has come out with the very compact and very affordable
Nikon D40 Digital SLR, there are a lot of EVF camera users who are
contemplating the move to the Nikon D40 Digital SLR. The base package
price is of course very reasonable and the lens being offered in the
package looks to be fairly adequate for most purposes, especially when
the fairly inexpensive AFS DX Nikkor 55-200 lens is added to the
system.

The big question is of course, what will it cost to upgrade to a longer
zoom range lens, so that it can be used as a one lens camera, just like
the EVF super-zoom cameras it is replacing for many users. As you can
see from the illustration above the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm
f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED fits the bill very nicely, but the cost of the lens
alone is nearly double the price of the camera (with the basic kit
lens).

For the rest of the article .......
