Try to get a used S-5200 or an S-9100 Fuji. Both will give you the same results as your excellent 5000. Both will also use the same cards and batteries in your 5000. I had a 5200 for a timeand replaced it with an S-9100 as I needed to be able to use a hot shoe flash for work. I loved my S-5200.Some the best 5MPpictures I have ever seen. I know one person who has an 5000 and they have not reported any issues with it.
