Nikon dSLR D40

I’m not into reviewing this thing and i’m not that pro enough to review cameras or things as such but i’m interested in owning it because i googled so many cameras, digital cameras to be exact and i find this Nikon D40 very interesting. Why Nikon D40 you say? They all say that this is among the cheapest and good dSLR camera out there even though it is only 6 Megapixels and it is the best camera to start if you wanted to learn about dSLR and its setting on the shutter speed, aperture and such. I know this camera is already a few years old and there are much more better camera out there but looking on the price..the cheapest dSLR camera out there is around..maybe rm2000+ to rm3000+ (well actually i don’t know the cheapest price..heheheh..just main teka saja la) and that’s way out of my budget, i’m not that rich. Again there is so much good review on this camera and also not so good review but hey!! all i wanted is to learn how to take good picture and fiddle with the settings..hehehe. Here are some pictures of the camera and some key features;
