New D40x

While in Canada, I decided I needed a new digital camera. After reading about it for a bit, a Nikon D40x looked like a really good fit. So far, I’m extremely happy with it.

I went ahead and bought a Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Zoom Nikkor Lens to go along with it. This should give me a little more zoom for long-range work.

Now, I just need to go take some nice photos.

    Hank… yes long time no see! Thanks for your comments on my blog. I’m glad to see you’ve also found Ken Rockwell’s website helpful.

    You asked about a flash. I chose the SB-400 and love it. Looks like I mistakenly wrote SB-800 in my post! Have to fix that. I previously tried the SB-800 on another camera and found it too big and clunky to use. The SB-400 is perfect for 90% of the shots in which I need a flash.

    Do save up for the lens. In my opinion, you only need two lenses: the Nikkor 18-200mm and a Tokina 12-24mm or Nikkor equivalent for twice the price.

    Ken Rockwell also wrote a review on the Tokina. They are the only two lenses I use now–and I love them to death.

    BTW: Troy’s having a lan party tonight. Wish you were in town :)

    Peace,

    Brian
