Nikon D40X announcement
We have it on good authority that the new Nikon D40X twin kit arrived at Nikon this morning (26/3). Stock should be with us by the end of the week so, if you've not done so already, please place your order now. Price $1399.
We've been given pricing on a twin lens kit for the D40X, including a standard 18-55mm and 55-200mm pair. Pricing on this kit will be under $1400, but that's unfortunately as specific as we can be at this stage. It appears that the single-lens (18-55mm) kit will also be made available, but we have no confirmation of this as yet.
Pre-orders for the Nikon D40X twin lens kit will be available very soon.

The news of the D40X digital SLR coincides with details of an updated Nikon lens, the AF-S DX VR 55-200 mm F4.0-F5.6G IF-ED. This lens features optical vibration reduction (VR), ED glass and Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which allows quick and quiet auto-focus. It is expected that this lens will feature in Nikon's future twin lens kits.
