NEW: Introduced today, November 16th, 2006
The D40 is the D50 replacement. The D50 will remain available through about June, 2007.
D50 prestaje da se proizvodi Juna 2007 .
Price: $599 with new G-II version of the 18-55mm. The body is not available separately. The body-only version will be available in Europe at 450 Euros (530 Euros with 18-55 II). USA Readers: avoid any offers for body-only, since they will be gray-market.
Lenses: AF-S (internal motor) lenses only. Won't focus with older (or current, brand-new non-AF-S) AF lenses.
AF: 3 AF points, downgrade from every other Nikon DSLR.
AF Illuminator: Built-in incandescent AF assist light.
Remote Control: Via IR ML-L3, same as D70/D80.
Frame Rate: 2.5 FPS.
Shutter: 1/4,000 - 30s and Bulb.
Flash Sync: 1/500 Yeah!
Flash: Built-in. Uses Nikon's good i-TTL system like the D80, D2X, D200 with SB-600 and SB-800. Built-in flash cannot function as a remote commander; for that you need the SU-800.
Sensor: 6 MP - same as D50, D70 and D70s. Standard Nikon DX size: 23.7 x 15.6 mm.
ISO: 200 - 3,200. Nikon labels ISO 3,200 as "H" so most people won't use it. This is because experienced photographers know ISO 3,200 is supposed to look grainy, but most people don't. Nikon (and Canon) hide these very fast settings with these code names so normal people won't use them and be unhappy with the grain and noise.
File Formats: JPG and NEF (Compressed 12-bit, the good kind).
LCD: 2.5″ 230,000 pixel LCD, the good one! It has great-looking menus.
Meter: 420 segment color Matrix meter; center-weighted and spot, too. Hopefully the firmware has been updated to address my concerns with the D80's meter, or it's the better meter firmware from the D50. "Better" is relative: in poor, contrasty light the D50 errs on the side of safety (dark) while the D80 errs on the side of peril: overexposure.
Exposure Modes: The usual Program (my favorite), Shutter-priority, Aperture-priority and Manual.
Idiot Modes: Portrait, Landscape, Night, Kid, Night Portrait, etc.
