*istDL is lighter

Perhaps it allowed a smaller camera body and a lighter one

But the D40 is 5g heavier than the *istDL (empty weights) and
that camera has a focus motor (and a view finder that is at least
as big).

and one that is more power efficient.

Unless using continuous AF I wonder if it really takes that
much power?

Perhaps Nikon has a time plan that includes a total
commitment to AF-S lenses and intends to move on from legacy lenses
and eliminate them from their continuous competition with their
current models.

Sure they want to sell a new AF-S lens for say $800 instead of having
people buy the same lens without AF-S on ebay or a 3rd party lens
for $400. It's in their interest, not so much in the photographers',
that's the similarity with the 300D.

Perhaps you will look back in a year from now and
realize the D40 is the most successful DSLR to come to market this

Could be if people aren't getting proper information about its limitations.

Just my two oere
