Am travelling across Europe on my motorcycle and want to buy a decent SLR camera. I am not a huge enthusiast so nothing too fancy but I am going to be going through some amazing scenery and want something to capture it with a wide angled lens. I am thinking of the D40 with the best lens you can get. Can anyone help me out? I'm looking to spend under 300 but can go just over if it's going to make a huge difference. Also I obviously don't want anything too big.

Cheers for any help
