Nikon D40x Announced

Nikon turned its attention to its digital SLRs today by introducing the D40x. The surprise upgrade to the D40 beginner SLR introduced late last year increases the resolution sharply from 6 to 10.2 megapixels -- matching the image size of the D80 and D200. The improved processing that follows also helps improve image quality and speed, according to the camera maker. Light sensitivity now reaches as low as ISO 100 for cleaner images in bright areas; capture speed is now as quick as three frames per second and will last the entire capacity of an SD card when shooting in JPEG.

Also new are standard and optional lenses. The complete D40x kit ships with a newer version of the 18-55mm, 3X zoom lens that improves sharpness and contrast; as an option for any of Nikon's DSLRs, a new 55-200mm VVR lens adds image stabilization for sharper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.
