First Impressions of the D5000 (with photos)

Firstly, I got this camera for three reasons

1 – My 11 year old daughter was ready to step up from her P&S
2 – I wanted a family vacation camera for when I didn’t want to take the D700

3 – I wanted to play with the video on a DSLR because I think the next FF DSLR will have it.

I’m impressed with it. I feels and shoots like my old D200. The image quality is first rate. My daughter really likes to shoot macros, so I put the 105VR on it, set the body to macro mode and set her loose. Here are a few of her photos. I think they are quite good, but then again, I’m partial.

And here’s one at ISO 6400
