You just described the Sony A100 which has a Street Price $650ish
Spot Metering, Bracketing, mirror lock-up (using 2 sec delay) and
in body stabilization.. and wireless flash triggering with the
built in flash..etc.
for the exact same prices and the D40x

You can't use that argument. Sony has no 'legacy of great non-AF
glass' for potential buyers to commit sepeku over missing out on.
If you flame Nikon for ignoring those people, you can't ignore
Sony's position in the market, either.

I think Sony's postion is 2nd over all with Nikon in 7th for all digicams and 3rd place for DSLRs in the last 6 months of 2006.(not sure how 2007 will shape up). With a Ton of legacy quality glass from Minolta.. that people can choose from.. even some nice MD lenses with a simple adapter than can be used MF at bargain basement prices.

But then again.. I just need to compare it to the XTi and we see Nikon has won the race to cripple its low end DSLR.
