Bend, US
          

wish they would have given it the 1/500 sync like the d40 for daylight fill, and nixed the video which in my opinion is useless. But, consumers want bells + whistles, so they got it with this one.
The flip screen seems to be the weak link here. I can see plenty of them going back for repair. Would be nice for macro shots though.
I'd be interested in a comparison between the d90 and d5000.
This apparently doesn't replace the d40 or d60... but adds another camera line between the d60 and d90.
From the specs though, I'd say it almost beats the d90 except in screen size and battery.

Not only this, but it seems now you won't have the option of a battery pack due to the swivel viewfinder unless you take the pack off, use the swivel, then put the battery pack back on.
