A large flash unit and bounced flash to reduce shadows is what you need to think about now

A cheaper camera in the hands of an expert gives better results than an expensive camera in the hands of a novice,....everybody needs to learn

But if you were still saving your money you'd be missing out on the learning you are doing now. An in-camera focus motor is only useful if you have lenses that need it. And while wireless flash is certainly useful for some things, you still need an external flash to use it. You can avoid the shadows on the wall by bouncing a hot shoe-mounted flash off of the ceiling, don't really need to use the flash wirelessly in this situation. And you'll be closer to being able to afford it with the D5000 than if you were still saving for the D90...

stick with the d5000. it is a capable kit, and you can work around the focus motor issue with different offerings, i.e. sigma 30mm 1.4 hsm, etc. if you even need it. plus you can put that money towards the aforementioned flash, etc.

Who needs auto focus? Especially for landscape photography. I haven't seen an auto focus system that incorporates hyperfocal distance.

Let me iterate this again. Moderate noise that is only visible at 100 percent will not print. You simply wont see it on your prints. Moreover, programs like those I mentioned can easily deal with moderate noise, and can usually deal with a lot of noise.

Print out an 8x11 of your first shot, and you simply wont see the noise, even without an anti noise program.
