Hi Roger:

I agree with you. I was a Costco, a couple of months ago (utterly bored – wife shopping) and I stopped by the camera dept, looking at the D60. Some people were asking me questions if to get the D60 or D90. I could not emphasize enough the difference between the cameras, but one person opted for the D60 because of the $300 dollars difference. The D5000 would close the gap and as Thom Hogan said: “The D90 got a Mini-Me.”

I have the D300 + D700; therefore, I have no interest in the D5000. However, I’m at the stage of my life that everyone around me – including me – is getting older. Who wants to take photos of old people! On the other hand, if this camera came out when I was raising my family with young kids, I might have gone for it (or the D90.) Video ability is almost indispensable to capture those moments in life – like the first uttered words – that are unforgettable.

Best Regards,

Ramesses
