I bought my Nikon D40 second hand from a friend after he'd had it for just 6 months and came into some money so wanted to upgrade to a better camera. I managed to get it from him for just over £100 but I would gladly pay at least (if not more than) double that for this camera. It's a brilliant and versatile camera that I can take anywhere with me. It's small enough to fit in my bag so I don't have to lug a heavy camera bag round all day, but substantial enough to take excellent quality pictures.
I have used it at hundreds of different events, including a lot of work outside in the rain, and it's incredibly resilient to the elements.
I have an 18 - 135 lens which is awesome and I would recommend to anyone. It lets me do big landscape wide shots as well as beautiful close-ups.
Only thing I would improve is to give it video mode.
