I recently bought my d3000 kit and currently happy with it. I'm new to dslr and to photography but very eager in learning (reading tutorials, joining photog gatherings/shoots and as they say, practice..practice..practice)

However, I just read a not so good review (from kenrockwell) re d3000 especially on poor ISO handling so now I’m thinking of switching to d5000, I don’t have the budget but I can save for it so my question is that, is it worth it to replace my current system to the d5000 or can d3000 still do the work(by enhancing my skills in photography ???).

I’m currently saving for a 35mm f1.8 lens (and maybe zoom lens in the future but I don’t know if I should go with the body first.

I’m interested in portraits, events and landscape photogs and wanted to learn IR and HDR
