    I think the D70 or D70s, which are both "obsoleted" are way better for what you want than the d40 or D40x. You get gnarly resolution on the D40x, but again...the lens control. You can get the D70s...

    So, you take a hit on the resolution if you drop back to a D70 or D70s, but then your camera body can shoot ALL the Nikon DX lenses. If you're going to be using the big lenses, then it's a fair...
