    I decided to get myself a new body and went with the Nikon D7000. ; I can only imagine what great capabilities it will have over my D40x. ; I will say that I am a little overwhelmed with it since it if far more advanced than my D40x. ; I guess I have to dive into the manual and maybe get a book on it since there are many things in the menu etc. that I have know idea about and what they do. ; I am sure I will be asking many questions over the next (insert creative word for eternity here) to you D7000 users out there as I come across stuff I cant quit figure out.

    this is my camera, there are many cameras like it, but this one is mine. i will protect and cherish my camera, i will read the manual, more than once, until the wheels and dials are like my own flesh and blood.

    way to go, we all love upgrades

    Say what you want about him, Ken Rockwell has excellent online user guides for cameras. ; For a small fee, you can get an app, too. ; Here is his D7000 page:

    Both his D70 and D700 guides got me up to speed quickly. ; I am still weeding my through the thick D700 manual and often reference Ken's stuff to clear out the cobwebs. ; :D

    Scott, thanks for the link to Rockwell, I was wondering if there was one, now I can add that to the list of readings!
