Man, I completely got ripped for this thing at Ritz Camera "Ultra" up at the mall. I didn't know that a $699 ($749 list, so I saved $50) camera was going to turn into $1054, but it did really quick. I'm having a moral dilema about returning it. The poor fucker that sold it to me probably makes commision, I probably made his day, and he should take his wife out to eat at a nice restaurant. Plus I'm supporting the local economy (I guess, if I even know what that is anymore).

More, better pics to come...

PICS NOW! :D
More pics of the camera, or more pics with me actually using it? :D

I really like Nikons, and have used quite a few of their "nicer" cameras (D200, D300, etc.) so I will definitely let you guys know what I think.

The only reason that I didn't get the D3000 is that I'll need video.

D5000's a nice *** man, congrats! :metal::) might have been worth waiting to check out the D3100 that Nikon announced today (D3000 replacement, has 1080p high-def video) to see which one you preferred, but the D5000 is a good buy imo.

Ritz Camera salesmen are somewhat commission-based, by way of "spiffs" they receive for certain items sold. I worked for Wolf Camera for 10 years, then a mixture of Wolf and Ritz stores after Ritz bought Wolf. You may have paid a little more than buying it from one of the NY con-artists, but chances are you'll get more help should you ever need it from Ritz than you would from the shit bags in NY.

Nice camera! I'm still mulling a D3000/3100, because I'm tired of borrowing my dad's D90 when I need something nicer than my Powershit.

Maybe I will grab Chris's D3000 used from him, once I tell him the D3100 was co-designed by Jonny Ives and comes with an Apple sticker. :rofl:

My bro recently bought a D5000. It's a SERIOUSLY nice camera, I only played with it briefly, but I've had major DSLR GAS ever since. Nice score!
