Some people earlier thought I was looking for someone to trade (or scam). Actually I was just asking:

I have a chance to swap my Pentax 555 for a Nikon 5000.

I bought the Pentax after considering all the reviews and ease of use.

After taking a Digital photography course I feel I could use a more "technical" camera.

A friend of mine has a Nikon 5000 + lens (not sure which one) that possible would trade with me. He can't seem to grasp the features and controls and his wife hates it.

We have been discussing a possible trade, but I'm not sure if it's enough of an upgrade for me.

They seem to be in the same price range (his older) and his has a "len's" option which mine doesn't. I like the Pentax's ease of use...

Anyone have any thoughts? I'm not going professional but I now understand the iso,f stops etc. and use custom setting per scene.

He is a friend so I don't want to rip him off either...Maybe my camera plus money?
