Re: regretting to buy D5000, not D90

It's all about what one is used to. I started with a D40, and now the D80 (I still have the D40) feels idiotic in some aspects (no OK button on the directional pad; smaller/less handy direction pad/no info button). I'm sure if I had started with a D80, it would feel equally ridiculous that the D40 dives into menus for WB and ISO.

But image quality is the same, as I suspect is the case with D90/D5000 and even maybe D300. Like I said, it's about HOW you take the pictures that changes with the two cameras, not WHAT they look like
