    I am about to purchase a Nikon D3000 (10 mpx) because of the small size and lite weight, but before I do, I wanted find out if the image quality would be comparable with any other digital slr with the same size sensor, using the same lens, same iso, same settings etc. taking still life and landscape so speed isn't an issue.

    The D3000 has a 10 megapixel ccd sensor, whereas the d5000 and d90 have 12 megapixel cmos sensors.

    While the d3000 is no slouch when it comes to quality, you'd get better photos out of the cmos sensor at the same settings--especially at higher isos.

    Think of it this way, the d3000 has the same sensor as the d200, whereas the d5000 and d90 have the same sensor as the d300, they are one generation apart.
