I already have one of these -- it's a Nikon D40. In well lit situations (almost all my shots) it is brilliant. I think it has something to do with a CCD sensor as opposed to the CMOS in my D5000 and D700.

In fact, I love the CCD sensor so much that I have just bought a D200 with 1500 actuations on it. Even using an old (Nikon 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/287035af.htm) lens on it is absolute joy. The indoor images (it's freezing outdoors) of my three grandkids are just right: colour rendition; saturation; brightness; contrast; focus. All the images I've taken of them so far are keepers.
