I do and I still have an AF Nikon Film camera which is the main reason I keep them. I also just found out today that the D70 that my father-in-law had is still sitting in his dresser. He passed away a couple of years ago, and my wife does'nt want it, so I will still have a DSLR that can use all my lenses if I decide on the D5000
The two things that are really pulling me in the direction of the D5000 are the video capture, and the articulating back LCD.

I purchsed a Casio P&S to have a pocket camera and to shoot video, I was amazed how well the video turns out, it is really a great feature to have without having to cart around two different cameras. I took the Casio on vaction with us this past summer and was able to capture about 45 minutes of video, just enough to show family, but not too much to bore them to death. Someone told me a longtime ago never shot more than 2-3 minutes of video at a time, otherwise you will end up with hours of video and no one wants to sit and watch hours of your kids and family on vacation. So now I limit my video and photo slide (DVD) shows to no longer than 6-7 minutes. It seems to keep everyones attention and it is not too long to become boring.


Thanks,
Mark
