I did a very quick comparison of the Nikon D5000 and Nikon D90. If you are wondering how they compare in weight and size, buffer, shutter sound, LCD quality and how they actually look sitting side by side, check it out. Hopefully this clip will provide some useful information to those who cannot make it to the local camera store and handle both cameras.

top entry.

Thanks for looking. All questions and comments welcome.

Forgot to mention the memory cards used in both cameras are Class 6 SDHC. At the very beginning I make the mistake saying both cameras have an FX sensor, of course I meant DX sensor. Apologies.

Cheers,

Mike

So has anyone purchased this one yet? If so how's it going? I'm looking to replace my camera in Aug this year. I like to read reviews on owners before I do anything, though.
