I read this from Dpreview:
Another thing: the twisty lcd on the 5000 just does not compare to the 995's mechanism. It's soooo much easier to twist the 995 in order to get that odd angle. You just do it intuitively without even thinking about it. With the 5000 you've got to pull the monitor out, twist it around the other way, and then try to hold onto that little bitty lcd screen without ever really being sure if you've got the camera on a straight plane. I found it to be not nearly as "inviting" as the 995's twist.

one of the advantage of having that non-camera like design is that it can become a make-shift tripod. put it on a table, fence, dustbin or anything... it's as good as a tripod.

Yah I have to admit the body of the 995 is pretty nifty. It's a very clever idea to separate the eye and the brain parts, but it makes so much sense. Now it would be even nicer if you could actually detach the eye part from the brain part and wave it around!

No camera is perfect and suit the need of everyone. CP9x0 series has best macro. The swivel LCD design becomes standard now too. I once shot a flower of 2cm in diameter down to the ground with a tripod. The distance is 2cm. With CP950 I did it with great satisfaction.
