I decided to get myself a new body and went with the Nikon D7000. ; I can only imagine what great capabilities it will have over my D40x. ; I will say that I am a little overwhelmed with it since it if far more advanced than my D40x. ; I guess I have to dive into the manual and maybe get a book on it since there are many things in the menu etc. that I have know idea about and what they do. ; I am sure I will be asking many questions over the next (insert creative word for eternity here) to you D7000 users out there as I come across stuff I cant quit figure out.
