I read a review on the D5000 that said when the guy changed his lense the camera developed a fault.
The silly tech question is...
Do i have to turn my camera off before i change to my new lense or is it safe to keep the camera on?

Not sure if it's required, but I'd suggest turning it off to change lenses.

No, you should turn the camera off before you change the lens.

I read a similar article and always turn off my camera before changing lenses. I have forgotten a few times and got away with it so I would be interested to know if any serious damage can be done.

Definitely turn it off first. And no tech question is ever trivial.

I'm going to post a new one now.
