    I'm debating between the Nikon D3000 and D5000. I will be taking picture of cars the most so I want the best I can so I can make my pictures, picture perfect. Thanks ahead!

    D90 > D5000 > D3000

    Of the two, I'd suggest D5000, but if you can, spring for the D90, it's a great body.

    Perfect pictures depend less on what camera body you use, and relies rather heavily on everything else.

    I really don't want to spend to much on the body, D90 is out of my price range.

    That's cool, I can understand that. Go with the D5000 then. A guy in my car club just got one, he and I are always shooting together and it makes some impressive photos.

    Bitter is right though, it's more about YOU than the camera, keep that in mind. :thumbup:

    The D5000 has the same sensor as the D90 and D300s which is a very good thing. I like to think of the 5000 as a D90 with different skin and minus a couple of features.
