As I said, I did not expect to see such a BIG difference between
the two viewfinders. The D40's viewfinder is so much better and the
LCD is not only large, bright and with a much higher resolution,
but it has a very wide angle of view.

I'm quite surprised you see so much difference, too. Going from
.75x (D50) magnification to the .80x of the D40 isn't much of a
jump. I just went from .75x (D70) to .94x (D200) and there is a
noticeable difference for sure. But .75 -> .80?

The BIRIGHTNESS difference between the two is very significant. Numbers do not tell you that. Try them side by side and prepare to see a notable difference.

OTOH, I haven't looked thru the D40's viewfinder yet. I should
give it a try at the local camera store, just to satisfy my own
