I think the point is, that this is a far more compact camera than the D40.
Yes, I should hope that quality will exceed the 40D, or the D3000, ot more or less twice the price.
I love the look of that OVF, but as ever it looks like we are expected to pay a 100% premium for the smaller form factor and lack of zoom etc.
