Could anybody tell me how the 5000 compares to the EOS 500D? Imagewise alone? And what exactly are you referring to with "limitation on certain lenses"? Anything else I should know about ? =)
Jim covered the "lens limitation" question quite thoroughly.

as for image quality difference between the nikon d5000 and the canon 500d. well to be honest, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. the 500d has a slight edge is sharpness and resolution, while the d5000 handles chroma noise at high isos a tad better, but high iso detail retention is nearly identical. both offer similar color profiles.

Depending on how much you want to spend, Olympus E520 will be a good choice if you are on a budget. The cost is $500 with 2 kit lenses.
