in the 80's, but didn't work. The market rejected them. That's why
even the most basic SLR/DSLRs since have M/A/S/P modes. And IMHO,
as long as a camera allows the user has complete control over
shutter, aperture and focus (and now manual WB & ISO too), the
camera can be as advance as the user is.

Well some not long ago film SLR's didnt have PASM...well the very entry ones..and had less features etc.........cut down AF, metering etc etc....

BUT.........

And this is the key.......they were vastly cheaper than the other models.......

I have a dynax 60, has most features bar MLU, I could have got a dynax 30..with the chopped down spec.......but the price reflected that..aka the 30 was a load cheaper...............than the 60..which sat below the semi pro model.

The D40 isnt a load cheaper......thats is the massive issue.........
