The D5000 really delivered on so many levels - DR rich, great control of noise at higher ISO, solid long exposure performance and it introduced the swivel screen to that range of Nikon DSLRs. Also pretty quick, although LV mode was lacking for AF and was more of a novelty than anything, something that flew in the face of that flip out LCD. PROS: - Fast performance, DR and IQ on par with the more pricey D90. - Swivel LCD allows great flexibility with composing. - Very nice build quality ...

My husband got it for me, and I couldn't be happier. Wonderful pictures. Wonderful camera, got different lenses and I LOVE IT. I would not trade it for another, I'm married to Nikon, also, have the Coolpix 12.0 megapixels, and ready to go all the time. Problems: None, so far

I used it in many extreme situations: - at -30°C ! - under the rain - dark (no flash) and every time the result is amazing. When i use the camera with a Nikon AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED the result is FANTASTIC! - silent and fast Extraordinary and impressive battery life (also when I use the VR 70-300) D90/D5000 sensor size: 23.6 x 15.8 mm D5100/D7000 sensor size: 23.6 x 15.7 mm Problems: None

I hope that most actually think about the other reviews that have been given. I didn't read through all of them, but the last few on here were very lacking and you could tell the person has never used, or probably even seen the camera. I at least wouldn't take someones word who spells like dat... Anyway, the camera is great. For those who are comparing it to other cameras that cost less there is a reason the others cost less. The D5000 is really a D90 with a couple less features. The ...

I have used D40,D60,D70 & D80, they are all feel outdated compare to D5000 in terms all ! I marriaged it with the 35mmf1.8G, the lens blend in so well into the D5000, it feel so good in hand! responsive , small, features rich and good image output abilities( still and HD video)! I shot it with 8GB SDHC card but it filled the card up just in an hour! ( the HD video took 90% of the card space), recommanded to couple with at least 32GB card instead. In short , buy it , you will love it ! I ...

Went from Canon 40D to Panasonic GF1 and then back to conventional SLR. In this case the Nikon D5000. Wow, knocks spots off my Canon 40D. Won't mention the GF1!!Responds faster than my 40D, and more importantly doesn't mis-focus as often. Colours are good and high ISO performance is brilliant. Bought the 18-105 VR lens on Ebay as an extra and am now very happy. Only shoot in RAW. Movie mode? Not tried it and don't really care. Problems: None.

Had this for little over 2 weeks. Married to a Tamron 18-270 lens. Image quality is EXCELLENT! Shot over 400 photos at an air show and only used a little over 1/4 of the battery. TONS of features, Live view. Problems: The ergonomics could be just a little better, lots of button pushing, if you play around at the settings. If you shoot a lot of auto, not an issue. The tilt/swing LCD is a plus.
