Re: Forgot to mention the battery

So you went from a D300 to a D5000 and never owned a D90? Yeah, that'd be quite a change fo' sho'.

I own two D90s and two D40s. I'm selling one D90 and have a D5000 coming via The Brown Santa and fully know what I'm getting into. I'm going to get decent money for my D90 body now and in a few years if I feel the need to "upgrade" I'll get a D7000.

Funny, people rag on the viewfinder on the D5000. If it's as good as the one on my D40 that'd be just great.

In my usage, the battery on the D5000 lasted about half as long as on the D300 (and I assume half as long as D90 as D90/D300 both use the same battery.) Maybe it's because I'm always going to the LCD to change settings versus looking at the top LCD/using dedicated buttons on the D300. Also the D5000 battery has less wattage. This may or may not be important to you.

$140...just skip Starbucks for a couple of months and you're there!
