Dpreview Review of Nikon D5000

The Nikon D5000 is a camera packed with features and looks like a Nikon D90 stuffed into a D60 body with a screen at the back.

It has excellent image quality, very impressive high ISO performance, good battery life and is very fast and responsive.

One problem the Dpreview found with the D5000 is that the back LCD movements can become severely restricted or blocked once the camera is attached to a tripod.

They also noticed the camera’s exposure would err on the side of underexposure, to prevent detail being lost.

This is Dpreview rating of Nikon D5000

The new Olympus E-P1 is apparently a Micro Four Thirds shooter, complete with a 17mm f/2.8 lens.

How good will it be? We will find out in the weeks to come. It is scheduled to be released on June 16.
