Hello everyone, after reading many of Gordon's reviews i joined this forum, and am about to get my first DSLR, but i cant decide between the two. Im almost set on the D40, but the K100D seems like a great value. I plan on using it for all kinds of photography, but mainly motorsports (which i know demands a fast expense camera, but unfortunately i cant afford one. i have seen motorsport done on both though.

What i like about the D40
-Very user friendly
-Good kit lens
-2.5fps unlimited
-Rechargeable battery pack

What i dont like
-No built-in AF
-only 3 AF points
-VR on only certain lenses

What i like about K100D
-Built in Anti-shake
-Tons of lenses to choose from
-ok kit lens
-11 point AF

What i dont like
-2.8 fps for only 5 frames
-meh menu system
-Uses AA batteries only

as of now im leaning towards the D40, but that may change, as it has been going back and forth for the last few weeks. Thanks for any help :)

Hi Jkuhn, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to advise myself as I've not tested the K100D. But I can say the D40 is a great entry-level DSLR, and it's on our Best Buys list here: ... DSLR.shtml
