Here is a link to D40 specifications:
Notice the red stars.
That is how the owners rate the camera. (very good)
Right under the red stars is a link to "Owner's Opinions".

Greetings, all. I am looking to finally upgrade from point-and-shoot to a good DSLR camera, and have my eye on the Nikon D40. It appeals to me for; low price (I don't have much to splurge something so superfluous - or was it essential? - as a camera), solid build, and speed (I hear it has a very fast power-on time, as well as good continuous shooting speed).
I'd like some opinions, particularly from those of you who own this camera, since reviews only go so far, and I spent only a little time using this camera in Best Buy. I don't want anything particularly fancy in a camera, and am not terribly experienced with SLRs, but I do shoot some serious photos, so reliability and functionality are most important to me.
Thanks in advance,
