The D5000 added the ability for any Nikkor lens ever made to mount to the camera. Where is that feature for $5K?

Actually the D40 added that ability but at a cost.

The old non-AI lenses can be converted to mount on all current Nikon cameras at minimal cost. However none of the AI, AIS, or converted non-AI lenses will meter on the D5000 (or the D3000 or Dxx) but the will on any Dx or D200 or later Dxxx body. Also the D5000 (and D3000, D40, D40x, D60) won't autofocus with non AFS lenses.

As far as I'm concerned lens compatibility of the Dx and Dxxx bodies is superior to that of any of the consumer level cameras.
