Re: D40x........does it deserve such high praise?

I find cameralabs.com review of Nikon D40x more accurate:

'the Nikon D40x was arguably released to compete directly against Canon’s best-seller and indeed they’re priced virtually the same from internet dealers. So how does the D40x measure-up? Well both cameras deliver roughly the same quality results, although the D40x has punchier output by default and its kit lens is superior. The D40x is also friendlier in operation, which will please first-time DSLR owners, although experienced photographers will prefer the Canon’s quicker access to settings like ISO and White Balance.

So far so close, but the Canon 400D / XTi boasts a much more sophisticated 9-point AF system, anti-dust features, depth-of-field previews and greater compatibility with older or budget lenses; and unlike the D40x, it also comes with RAW processing software and a TV out cable. It all depends on your preferences, but the Canon is a technically more powerful and better-featured camera.'
