D5000 - ergonomics vs D40 etc vs D90
Seeking some feedback please from people who have owned/used a D5000 AND D40/x/60/3100/3200 OR D80/90.
I am thinking of a (used) D5000 as an upgrade from my D60. (D5100 is another consdieration. I've handled it in store and it is pretty similar to the 3100, 3200)
I like the size of the D60. I have also used a D90 and although I like the D90 controls I find it a bit big and heavy for carrying around. From my web research it looks like the D5000 is almost as tall as the D90 but a little narrower and thinner.
How have folks found the D5000 handling wise in comparison to its smaller and larger siblings? Is it more like the D60 or D90 to hold?
The D5000 and D60 can use the same batteries and it won't have massive MB file sizes like the D3200 (and the D5100's are also biggish). The D5000 would get me the image quality and focus system of the D90.
thanks in advance
