"Best compact Nikon body in last 10 years?"

So I have been shooting with a D40x and D80 since 2007. Some burglars recently gave me the opportunity to re-think my entire camera/lens collection, as I will be starting from scratch. I will likely buy used equipment, so the whole model line is available to me.

Anyway, I loved the D40x. It seemed to have a good chip in it (I thought it did a slightly better job with colors than did my d80), and I loved its compact size. I'm now in the market for a replacement body. It would help me if you all could tell me which of the compact bodies has the best chip in it. Superior high-ISO low light performance would be a big plus.

If you all don't think that there is a huge difference among these bodies, that is useful to know too. I could always just go for the best deal or pick up a D50, which will work with all the good ole AF lenses.

I almost posted in the D50/D40/D60 forum -- I want to consider both model lines. Whether or not the camera can do video is not really a big priority for me -- all else being equal, it would be nice.
