I'm looking to buy a speedflash for my nikon d40x.  I do a lot of family/children photography.  I have the Nikkor Lens 55-200mm w/VR.   Any suggestions to speedflash I should look into?

Nikon has 4 model Speedlight that will work great with your D40. Cost is between $150 / $600 new or you can purchase refurbished which carries 1 yr warranty from Nikon. Here is a link to Nikon Store.

Hope this help.

SB-400 is a good flash, small yet powerful and has bounce capability. You dont need much if you are using the flash on camera, still even other flashes would most likely produce same results.
Thank you! It is affordable too!
money is really the question.  i have the sb400, 800, and 2 900's.  they are all great.  sb400 is awesome for what i think it was meant for.  it has far more power than your built in flash, and will save your camera battery and make that last longer since it doesn't have to power the flash.  i use energizer lithiums in it and it seems like they last forever.  you can do bounce flash while shooting horizontal with it also.  great flash!!!  if you've got more money you might look at a SB700.  it's a newer flash and i've heard great things bout it.  i think you're lookingat about $369.  way more power and will do more.  i have a D40x that my daughter is now using and that's a neat little camera.
I bought a sb-600 on craiglist for $100.
