Hi all,

I just found a D5000 camera at Target--a display model that says "Repackaged" and is going for $455. I didn't consider it at the moment, because I never think of buying a display model, but it is over $200 off after all. I didn't ask if it came with warranty or what it did/did not come with, but I'm thinking of stopping by tomorrow. The fact that it is a display model makes me nervous though. What do you think? Is it worth it if it comes with a warranty? I have a $500 budget, so it will be either the display D5000 (that makes me a bit uneasy) or a brand new D3000. I'm also new to SLRs, so I was originally planning on just going with that, since it seems more user-friendly.

Thank you!! Can't wait to be an official Nikonian in the next few days!
