One of my customers is stuck on whether to buy the D40x or D80. He wants the 18-70 AFS lens with either camera but is undecided. He likes the lightness of the D40x but thinks paying a pound more for the D80, which is the kit price is a better deal. He has been back and forward to Calumet twice this week at least it gets him out! I'd buy the D40x as it is a lovely little camera but then I've already got the D100.
