and am pleased with the IQ of the X10 at even ISO 3200.

The D40's ISO 3200 is barely usable for a 6x4" print. If your D40 has only a kit lens, you're gaining around 3 stops using the X10 with its fast lens and ISO set to 3200 which looks like D40's ISO 1600. Of course there's the WDS problem on the X10. Only you can decide if you'll likely be in situations that bring it out.
