Re: "who needs 8MP?"

I think there is another angle to the AF-S only approach. Keep in mind that when you are making a camera body compatible with every lens ever built you are competing with stuff you marketed ten years ago along with every third party manufacturer. It seems to me it is a step by step plan for the future. Gradually they have limited their camera offerings to the final step in the D40 making it clear that only present and future lenses will be compatible effectively carving a market place for their own lenses at least for the present and eliminating competition from everything made in the past.

Another point in your criticism of the review on the AF-S only basis is the obvious fact that eliminating the in the body focusing motor is not a design flaw, it is a design plan. For that you can offer praise, if you see it that way. It would be hard to characterize it as a defect therefore hard to really make much of it beyond suggesting that if it is a game breaker to look somewhere else.
