I was ready to buy a Pentax K100D when Nikon announced the D40. So, I waited. After comparing the two cameras, I opted for the D40 mainly for its fast response and light weight. I received it a little over a week ago and I'm already impressed with its performance. However, I am a bit disappointed with its built-in flash (I have to crank it up to +0.7 in order to get decent coverage) and picture softness (I'm using custom setting "medium high"). Although I haven't had a chance to explore all its settings, I have explore its ISO andmacro capabilities. I've also tried something I haven't read anywhere. I've attached my Ricoh 1.5x tele converter (I use it with my Pana FZ20 and Sony H1) to the kit lens (both are 52mm mount) and took some pictures. I was amazed with the results. Not only the camera metered correctly but it focused accurately as well. I haven't seen very many D40 pictures posted here, so I hope you'll enjoy it!
