    i was actually signing on to write a post about the D5000 i received in the mail today. my girlfriend has been using my D50 until now but she's been unhappy with the poor ISO performance above ISO400. so i ordered her a D5000 yesterday, got it today and started playing with it.

    first thing i can say is i really though the D5000 was in the same league as the D90, but it's truly not. not even close. as far as basic image quality they are identical. ISO performance is good, IQ is good, metering sucks compared to the D90 and i can't figure out hot to shoot continuous. the D5000 has basically no dedicated controls which drove me insane.

    i would consider the D5000 more of an enhanced D60 than a stripped down D90. i thought i could use the D5000 as my second body when my girlfriend isn't with me but so far i really prefer the D50 over the D5000.

    In his quote he talked about the D90! that is the step up above the D60 and the D5000

    I think I would really go with the D60 before the D5000.

    As I research everything it looks more like the D5000 runs with the D60 but with Live View and Video?

    Others my argue my thought but it is my thought! If you want a step up from D5000 then you go to D90

    well... let me add this. even though i hate the D5000 after using it, for most scenarios the increased ISO performance over the D60 is probably worth the additional $250 if it's in your price range and the D90 isn't. EDIT don't get me wrong, the D5000 is a great camera, but it does not compare to the D90
