The Nikon D40. It arrived yesterday in the mail, and I already LOVE it!! I'm sure that we will learn all sorts of things about it as we go along, but so far, I am very pleased!! I did lots and lots and lots of research, and I think that this is the camera that will best suit my family's needs. Don't expect the pics to be professional overnight...it will be a work in process as I learn the camera. I'm so excited...it was just like Christmas when UPS came yesterday!!!
