Value For Money

Based purely on recommended retail prices, this model is significantly cheaper than the new Canon EOS 500D and offers all the benefits of the more expensive Nikon D90 in a smaller body. In many areas it doesn't quite match up to the new Canon - resolution, ISO range, screen size and movie size are all lower - but the differences are minimal and for the price difference you can almost accept this. Over the D90, benefits include the vari-angle nature of the screen, but against the D90's larger body and higher-resolution LCD, it may be a tough choice. It is slightly unfair, however, to compare the D5000 to discounted older models and within its market it's very competitive. In the past month the price of the Canon 500D has dropped by £110 and we expect the competition between these two cameras to result in some great deals to be had. WDC
