The D40 is an awesome camera, especially at the price I bought it ($375 with kit lens - but refurbished). It's years out of production now and has been superseded, but it does fine for my casual needs. The only two gripes I have about it, in order of importance are:
- Auto white balance is sucky for incandescent lighting. So I always switch from auto to preset when I shoot indoors.
- Only one func button makes it awkward. I have to pick between select ISO and select WB for that button. I think select WB wins out, but it would be nice to have dedicated buttons for that.
