My Nikon D40X just died after a little over 27,000 shutter clicks. I am really sad because I didn't buy the extended warranty. Of course, the manufacturer's warranty ran out the month before.

Hoping it lasts me another year and then upgrading to a FX instead of renting one.

Nikon refuses repair on guarantee. Guess my next camera will be a Canon after all.
