Nikon D40x SLR upgrade

Nikon today introduced the D40x, a surprise upgrade to the D40 beginner SLR introduced late last year that increases the resolution sharply from 6 to 10.2 megapixels along with improved processing for better image quality and speed. Electronista reports that light sensitivity now reaches as low as ISO 100 for cleaner images in bright areas and that capture speed is improves to 3fps, which will last the entire capacity of an SD card when shooting in JPEG mode, according to the report. The complete D40x kit ships with a newer version of the 18-55mm, 3X zoom lens that improves sharpness and contrast; as an option for any of Nikon's DSLRs, a new 55-200mm VVR lens adds image stabilization for sharper images without the use of a tripod. The D40x will be available in body-only form in April for $730, or as a full kit with the 18-55mm lens for $800. The VR lens will also be available at the same time for $250.
