Hi, I am also an owner of a D40 (love it but it's getting really worn out!) and besides the kit lens, I have a Sigma 70-300mm and now this wonderful 50mm f/1.8 lens too. I LOVE IT! On sunday I am doing my first photo session with two girls-sisters and I just can't wait to use this.

I do have some "test" pictures that I took to compare f/1.8 and more regular f/5.6 - the difference is great!

Here is a link to my little gallery.
