I bought my D5000 because of the rotating/flexible LCD screen enabling me to shoot from ground level or above my head. A great facility for more creativity.

I chose the D5000 because of the swivel screen and live view. I have found that I rarely use either feature now. I do love the camera though, it takes quality shots. One irritation is that I constantly hit the directional button with my thumb, changing my focus point. I wish it had a focus lock. Anyone have any suggestions, besides the obvious!

The £50 cashback from Nikon was good. Seriously though the thing I like most is that it delivers the same picture quality as other, more expensive, Nikons.

Achilles_ds says focus speed is too slow when using the focus screen. I had the same problem when I was using a Sigma lens. I changed to a Nikon lens and the problem went. The Sigma was sold as "compatible" but it was not truly so.
