When I played with the D5000 I had my D300 with me.
I set both camera in Manual mode.
ISO 3200
1/30 shutter speed
f/5.6
Found that the D5000 was a little better.
They were close.. had to pixel peak real close to tell the difference

ISO 3200
1/60 shutter speed
f/8
Found that the D5000 was a hair better.
Same thing... had to look real close to tell a difference.

When I went up to Hi 1.0 or I think that is 6400 ISO was when I started to see the D300 look a little better than the D5000
Not by much though.
But, for head to head comparison... the D5000 stands its ground.

This is my opinion... it wasn't really a true controlled test. All my shots were hand held, which is where most shots actually happen anyway.
