Just got a D5000 to complement a later purchase of a FF (D700 or replacement or maybe even 300s) and I must say the video feature is quite enjoyable. It does not matter that it cannot AF because it encourages you to be more creative and hands-on. have really warmed to the idea that I have this facility available now and can see the trend going this way. Of course it does not replace a dedicated video camera but something is better than nothing and at HD quality, the video quality is a lot better than a still facility on a video camera. What do others think?
