The 10.2-megapixel Nikon D40x is intended to bridge the gap between the entry-level D40 and enthusiast-level D80, and as such takes a bit from both models.
Value For Money
Compared to the D40, Nikon’s D40x isn’t bad value, with an additional £150 getting you a slightly more robust shutter and an extra 4 million pixels. It also offers good value alongside the D80 as you get the same pixel count and a generally similar spec – at least in terms of photographic controls – with money to spare. However, Samsung’s GX10 isn’t that much more expensive.
