Be careful though- a lot of lenses wont autofocus with a D40/60. Something to think about. I assume you have lenses since you want body only.

X2 on B&H, super great and have been wonderful to deal with...

Ya, but only the brand new lenses will auto-focus on the D40 and D60!!
Just a fair warning...
That is the reason that I got a D90

I have a D40 and it is a little tough finding lenses that will auto focus but they are out there. I wouldn't let that stop you.

my newest lens is the Tamaron 28-75 f2.8 and so far I really love this lens, it was worth the money. Tamaron has most every lens Nikon has but a little cheaper price.
