The Nikon D5000 is rated as an excellent camera by the major photography magazines online. It is considered an entry-level to enthusiast level DSLR. Costco has a package deal …for the camera body, two VR zoom lenses and a camera bag for 824.99. BHAudioVideo has a very good deal on the body only or with one zoom. A comparable camera, nikon d3000 with a two lens kit is 599.99 at best buy, at least here in our local store. I am wavering between these two but will likely own one of them in a few days. Good luck. oh and they kick a$$ botth of them i sware yo
If you have an AF, or auto-focus lens (like the kit 18-55mm lens) you can focus your lens prior to filming, but cannot auto-focus while filming. To manually focus, switch the …switch on the side of your lens to 'M' for manual. To focus, turn the outer focus ring on the lens until your subject matter is clear.
Is Nikon D5000 with the lenses that come with it a good camera for interior or architectural photography?
No. Architectural photography requires control over converging vertical lines. Anytime you shoot a building and don't hold the camera perfectly perpendicular to the building's… surface, the vertical surfaces of the building willh converge making it look like it's leaning in the picture. You need 1) a view camera with tilt, shift & swing lens plate and ground glass, or 2) perspective control lenses for the D5000, which run over $1000 a pop.
I have a Nikon slr d5000 and was wondering if the extra lenses had to be made by Nikon to fit my camera?
No as long as they have the correct mount.
Too much. Just kidding... =) Go to your local Best Buy for details.
Yes in manual and non TTL auto modes.
i have the nikon D3100 and i love it there are so many options etc

Most Nikon lens will work in complete manual mode, but to get the most from the lens (auto-focus, metering) stick to Nikkor lenses with AF or G in the title. Full comparabi…lity chart in the related links below.

Some criticisms of the Nikon D5000 are that is small and has less pixel resolution that other models. These criticisms are mainly aesthetic in quality and different people may… view them as positive points in regards to price point or size.
Nikon specifically states that the D50 can only accommodate up to a2GB SD card. However, some users find they can use the 4GB cardwith their D50s (see Resources). Although not… guaranteed, use onlySDSC and not SDHC (High-Capacity) cards.
