    If you are thinking about an entry level digital SLR camera see the
    side by side comparison of the new Nikon D40 digital SLR versus the
    Nikon D50 and the similar Pentax K110D at
    The Nikon D40 performs really well although it is a little more
    expensive. The D50 and K110D are about $50 less.

    Had been stuggling with decision about Nikon vs Pentax low end DSLR.
    Was leaning heavily to Nikon because of multiple reported differences
    in expectation versus Pentax exposure readings. But have been usinr IS
    functions brom K-M and Panasonic for a couple of years. Put the D50 w/
    28-80 Nikkor on order yesterday. Thanks for pointing out new site.

    Cheers, - the D40 does seem to get very good reviews in the magazines
    I've read.

    I didn't realise that it didn't have an auto focus motor built into the
    body - does this mean you have to use Nikon AF-S lenses if you want AF?

    Hi Jeff,

    With respect to the D40, yes you have to use Nikon AF-S lenses to get
    auto focus. You can use the other Nikon AF lenses and all the metering
    will work although you will loose the ability to have AF. The cameras
    Electronic Range Finder does work with these lenses so you do get focus
    confirmation when you manually focus with those types of non AF-S

    All the best,
