im tempted to buy me a camera (first non-disposable of my own), and im of the mindset of buy something good that will last (or at least can be upgraded), so im looking between the canon 400d (Digital rebel xti) and the D40x. The place i would purchase from has the d40x with a 18-55mm lens for $988 (nz dollars) and the 400d with 18-55mm and 75-300mm lens for $1398 (also nz dollars). Im going to have a look at the bigger store on the other side of town soon to see if they offer the 400d with just the 18-55mm lens and if so at what price. I am currently leaning towards the 400d with both lens. Is that lens worth the price difference. And on a final note does the d40x accept cf cards as most reviews seem to say sd, and i was under the impression that cf was better suited to dslrs.
