None of these features are relevant to the target demographic. As
has been often noted in these forums, the people buying the
D40/D40x are those who would have otherwise considered a bridge
cam, but decided that the extra few dollars was well worth the
great leap in image quality. I think Nikon have it right where it
needs to be.

And what about an enthusiast who doesn't have too much cash to buy
a D80 soon as an upgrade? He will deifinitely step over and go for
Canon 400D or A100. The crux of the matter is: When competition is
offering more at same price point, you have to match them at least
and even exceed with some USP. What is Nikon D40X's USP over 400D
(similar size) or A100 (with in-body I.S.)?

US B&H Street Prices:
Canon XTi $663
Sony A100 $630
Nikon D40x $744 (with 2GB SD card)
