    Unlike yourself I have been out today using my camera, not writing silly posts.
    I asked why and you gave a good answer,I’ve had 3 nikons , the Canon I had I found tricky to use, image quality i found nothing between them.

    @jerryteflon This is just my personal opinion, but 1st of all i must say that im not Canon or Nikon kind of fan, i have no problem in using bouth brands, acording to the model, and i had contact with many cameras, in fact my actual camera is the Pentax K7.
    Now, for my personal opinion, the d5000 takes good quality pictures in almost any condition, and also has the Active D-lighting funcion.
    But by the way, why not the new Pentax K5?

  7. jerryteflon says:

    @sergionuno Why ?……

  8. jerryteflon says:

    @sergionuno Why ?

  9. sergionuno says:

    @NAGULNR2 in terms of image quality i would go with the nikon d5000

  10. sergionuno says:

  11. iZtiGAko says:

    @neftyjac I Would Recomend d5000 because all lens age is aquirable to all Nikon Cameras .. Lol im still a kid Grammar aint that good.

  16. EqRiderExtreme says:

    Hi. I want to ask you. I am going to buy a dslr. I will need to make video & taking pictures. Which camera would you recommend to me? I would like to buy neither D5000 nor D3000.
