Nikon D5000

pic_001-1
Review Date: Dec 5, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Size, price, image quality, good (not great) meter
Cons:
Most controls are menu, not button, driven, lots of plastic, uses SDHC cards (I have tons of CF cards)

I bought a D5000 + 18-55 VR kit as a small travel package, and have been happy with the results. Image quality is on par with my D200/D300's, but not as good as my D700 (duh).

The D5000 feels good in my hands, but having to drill down in menus to change things like ISO and Exposure Comp gets a little old. I also seem to somehow move my AF point somehow, so I have learned to double check that it is where I want it (center AF point).

Of course you can only use AF-S lenses, but that was not a factor in my purchasing decision.
