Nikon has put up a service advisory regarding the D5000. It has to do with a power problem that affects a limited production series of this camera, which may not properly power on, even with a fully charged EN-EL9a battery or connected to AC with the EH-5a power adapter
My Nikon wishlist: D700+MB-D10, AF-S 14-24 mm f/2.8G, AF-S 55-200 mm. f/4-5.6G and Sandisk Ducati 4 Gb. CF plus firewire card reader.
Nikon USA anounced an instant savings offer for a D5000 "Outfit", which includes the AF-S DX 18-55 f/3.5-5.6G VR and the AF-S DX 55-200 f/4-5.6G VR lenses, which can now be had just 5 cts. short of U$ 1.000.
Maybe the best Nikon ever built? Some will surely disagree, but with over 14.000 takes on it, and considering its price, I think yes! Updated: 29-04-09.
My Nikon cameras, past, present and future. Some facts and some speculation.
