I had a friend who wanted to buy the D5000. You can get it with the 18-55 and 55-200 lens for a decent price. However if he purchased the 27-200 lens it would cost $300 more. He did not have the money to go that far so he decided on purchasing the D60 with the 27-200 lens. He wanted conveinance with one lens more than the better camera which he feels does not take better photos if you stick with 4x6 and 5x7 prints.
Update: The price difference at B&H for the D60 and D5000 with the 27-200 lens was only $100. So he opted for the D5000 with the two lens option to keep his cost in the $1,000 range.
