Hi , you made a good choice.I know this is a late post...

I don't know much about the D3000,but I have the D5000.
I am totally amazed at the high ISO low noise ! .

Overall , I find this to be the #1 feature/best thing of this camera.And great image quality 2nd.Overall - VERY happy.

I did a ton of testing when I first got the camera,modes,ISO,checked for dust/dead pixels(returned two copies for dead pixels)...

ISO alone - is worth this camera .I was slightly disappointed with useing swivel(full-time),but it was not ment to use full-time.
(I should have bought Panasonic GH1 ... , it is ment to use full time live).

Well, I wanted to include an ISO 6400 back yard test image.!I did have a 3200 ISO car show photo that I could see a little noise under the head-light.So it may depend... .

Good day , Larry

6400 ISO ! ! . ; Oh, D5000,w/Nikon 55-200VR@102mm,f/25,60th,ISO 6400,though Exif info did not record ISO.
