One thing I love about the D40 is it's autofocus seems unusually good. I haven't tried the 7000, but the D40 performed better than the D90 or D100s in my experience (using center focal point only).

The metering is great, the RAW files are reasonably small allowing me to shoot exclusively in RAW without burdensome processing times and download speeds. The size is compact, and the AF is too good to be true. Downsides are it stinks when shooting over 400 ISO (noise) and the menu system is a bit difficult to navigate if you like to adjust lots of things manually, but overall I think Nikon made this camera too good. I will never sell my D40!
