ADVANTAGES

Nikon D5000 - annouced on April 14th, 12megapixel, hi-def video, same sensor as the D90. It lacks an auto-focus motor. Too bad is doesn't autofocus with 3 of my 4 favorite lenses, just like the D60 and D40. Retail is $730. I'd pass on it, and get a D80/D90 unless you are ok not using a fisheye lens underwater. The nikon 10.5mm and tokina 10-17mm fisheyes won't auto-focus with this camera. I tried out a Nikon d60 once and did not like it at all. If price is an issue go with a used D80/D200 instead.
