I am looking at getting the D40x and am curious on which version I should go with. <BR> <BR>The 6.1mp includes the 55-200mm VR lens from Costco for $649.99. <BR> <BR>The 10mp kit comes without the VR lens for $779.99. <BR> <BR>Looking to shoot snowboarding, wakeboarding, some motocross, and nature pictures on my hikes. <BR> <BR>Should I take the extra mega pixels or stay with the lower mega pixels and get the VR lens? I'm new to the DSLR world.

I don't think you're comparing apples to apples. The 6.1 MP is not a D40x. That's the D40.

Woops! Didn't mean to do that. <BR> <BR>D40 and D40x are what I am looking at.

I think my VR zoom was ~$300, so the D40 w/ VR is a pretty good deal.

My sugesstion is get a d40x with the 55-200 vr from B&amp;H for 775.90 plus shipping and handling. <BR>lense <BR><a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart&amp;A=details&amp;Q=&amp;sku=486717&am p;is=GREY" target="_blank">http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart&amp;A=details&amp;Q=&amp;sku=486717&am p;is=GREY</a> <BR>body <BR><a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart&amp;A=details&amp;Q=&amp;sku=486460&am p;is=REG" target="_blank">http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart&amp;A=details&amp;Q=&amp;sku=486460&am p;is=REG</a>

Adorama (a reputable online site) has the D40x with the 18-55 kit lens AND the 55-200 VR for only $775; this is a heck of a deal for this package, and probably won't last long: <BR><a href="http://www.adorama.com/INKD40XKB.html" target="_blank">http://www.adorama.com/INKD40XKB.html</a>

Ended up with the D40 with 1855mm and the 55-200mm VR locally for the Costco price. <BR> <BR>Now it's time to learn to use it <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by goinbigg17 on December 28, 2007)
