D40/x size compared to D200

I have a D200 and many AFS lenses. I am just a hobby photographer and like to shoot occassionally when I see it as opposed to going to a specific location to shoot a specific thing. I have noticed that of late, I have not been carrying my D200 around as much because of the size weight, even with the 18-200mm. I have not been able to get out to look at a D40 since I live on an island. I have not been able to find a picture of a D40 next to a D200 to compare the actual size difference.

I am also curious if anyone else has purchased a D40/D40x for the same reason and if so, do you now carry your camera around where you were not because of the weight/size of the D200. In other words... would the outlay of about $600 be worth it, or do you find that now that you have your D40 it sits at home like the larger camera did?

thanks for the feedback and if you know of a link or can take a comaprison shot of the D200 to the D40 from a couple of angles it would be appreciated.
