"Very happy I purchased the D5000"4.0 starson by Green Latern
Pros: All the new technology of the D90 in a less expensive camera. Feels great in your hands, I like the swival on the unit. Takes amazing photos (with a good photographer of course), and a big step up from my Coolpix 5000 which I am giving to my son.
Cons: I lacks the quick controls of the D90. You have to use the menu on the screen which is ok, but not what I am use to. It would be quicker with the controls on the camera like the D90. However there is still a knob for (green), SP, AP, and M.
Summary: I really wanted the D90 but with getting the two lens that I wanted (18-55, and 55-200) it was out of my price range. For several hundred dollars in savings, I was able to get the same quality sensor, etc, as the D90 at a cheaper price.
