Im just getting into "Real" photography. Before i was using cheap cameras just to catch fast pics on the go. Now i want to start getting into the more artistic parts of photography. Ive been doing research on the Nikon D40 10.2 megapixle version. and it looks like a good choice.
Do you guys think this would be a good camera for the novice looking to improve. Will it have all of the adiquite features for taking "money shots?"
and if you guys have this camera could you recomend a good lens for it. Would auto focus be better than manual focus?
