Good point. I have no idea what is going on. The only thing I know is that Nikon might have managed to completely confuse any potential new consumer to the Nikon line of cameras. I can imagine the following conversation:
- I am new to Nikon cameras. Can you please advice about the different models?
- No problems. The basic Camera is the D40. The next step is the D60. However, they just announced the D5000, which is better than the D60 but not as good as the D90. However, you have the top of the line consumer cameras, DX format: the D300 and FX format: the D700. Of course, the pro cameras are the D3 and D3x.
- Sorry, but you said that the D5000 is better and he D60 but not as complete as the D90. How come? Isn’t 5000 bigger and better?
