I have to say I'm pretty tempted by the D5000....but I'm not sure if it's just NAS, desire for new shiny things or a practical reason....

I have a D3 for everyday shooting and I use a D300 for travel. I'm wondering if there is any room for a D5000....I'd like a small, light, portable body with similar IQ as the D300 with which I love....I'd also like to try out the video....but I've read of so many limitations of the video function....

Would it be worth it for the video and swivel screen alone?
