My D40 returned a few days ahead of schedule, I thought it would not arrive until next week. I foolishly tried to clean its focusing screen and messed it up, royally. Lesson learned. I forgot how light this thing is, and how easy is is to operate. Although it's "only" 6 MP, I have taken some gems with the D40 and it's not hard to see why it was a roaring success for Nikon.
