    When in doubt, don't get anything. Analyze your needs (during the confusion) then make the decision. If you already know your needs, then just go for it. *There is no need to seek "approval"/confirmation to get what you want...*

    I've heard otherwise. Usually what I hear goes something like "When in doubt, get both"

    Anyway, if it were me, I'd upgrade for the better controls. If you are looking for image quality alone then the D5100 would be a cheaper choice.

    Well, the only exception you that rule is if you have too much money to spend...

    I kept my Nikon D70 precisely because it was a gift and that it got me some photography awards.

    Honestly, it shouldn't be too difficult to get the D7000 without selling the D5000. It's about $1,600 brand new, $1,400 and below 2nd hand. Just head out and get some decent work and you'd get there.

    I upgraded from D3000 to D7000 without selling my D3000 (because it's my first dslr, got feeling also) and sometime either me or my gf will use it haha

    Ask yourself if you really need the better performance right now. Like you, I am still using a D5000 and I think that a D7000 is a good upgrade choice. However I shoot mainly for fun, can't really justify spending the money for an improvement in image quality for now, so I've decided to continue saving and wait till the D7000 replacement comes out.

    If you have the budget and the purchase makes you happy then go ahead!

    I agree really. Else why upgrade.

    Harvey Norman, Courts, Challenger and all other megastore, they don't care a damn when you request to molest their camera. You can also go TK foto, John and the such too... But I don't think they like it when you press on their shutter and had no intention to buy the cameras.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    The rumour is that the D7000 replacement is to be released towards the end of this year. If you can wait, I would suggest you do.
    I switched from the D5k to the D7k about 14 months back and I love the improvements it brings, but if you tend to use the articulating LCD for things like macro, then you'll miss it dearly. I do.
