Turning the new low cost Nikon D40 Digital SLR into a powerful one lens, wide angle to telephoto, 11

    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 .......
