A new DSLR from Nikon - D5000, looks like it has the sensor technology from D90, the familiar 11 point AF and a flip out screen that can also be turned around and closed for protection.

Images can be found in the gallery section under cameras.

This seems to be quite a nice little camera for the money. I don't know if it has its own AF motor, my guess is it probably doesn't.

Nope, no autofocus motor, but it's still a little bulkier than the D60 because of the screen, and possibly the better autofocus sensor.

Apparently Nikon felt the need to split the difference between the D60 and the D90. With Canon doing the same thing and other offerings from Pentax and Sony, it's getting crowded in the entry level SLR realm.

4 FPS and 11 point AF should be nice. Having the lower noise D90 sensor will definitely be good.
