Default Any reviews on the D5000

Has anyone reviewed the nikon D5000.
I have the D70 and ive been wanting to upgrade and have just been waiting for the right one. I love action sports the most so i need something good. I love my D70 its been a great camera. I have The sigma HSM 2.8 ,70-200 lens, it should fit on this D5000 shouldnt it?

Have you considered doing a Google search on "nikon d5000 review"? There seems to be several listed. Check it out. When there is a review here, it will be announced.

if it fits on your D70, it'll fit on a D5000

That Sigma should work since it's got HSM.

As long as your existing lenses are AF-S (Nikon's Silent Wave Motor focusing) or HSM (Sigma's Hypersonic Motor Focusing) then you'll still have Autofocus.

But, if you have any lenses without a focus motor built in, then they're not going to Autofocus on a D5000 (since this camera body does not have a built in focus motor like your D70 does).
