Finished reading the review as well as surf dpreview's Nikon forum. Found some things about the CP5k worth mentioning which I dun recall from reading the review.

Excellent color accuracy (as expected from CoolPix)
And finally found some constructive points worth trying out from the postings regarding AF in low light. Apparantly, CP5k MAY have a better time focusing in low light if user do not use 'Continuous AF'. I'll give this a try soon and update if necessary.

Sadly, Phil only gave a "Recommended" for this camera. And the reason why its 'sadly' is becoz everyone expects a "Highly recommended" for a Nikon brandname.

If you read the review throughly, you will understand the 5000 had many shortcomings that makes the recommended rating look overated.

I also think people's expectations of Nikon have lowered after the 885 & 775.

Quite 'disappointing' for a company like Nikon.

I got it at around $1500++ @ SLS
For that price, isn't the G2 a better choice? More value for money...;)

Prefer Nikon for the 5 megapixel loh. And I think the CP5000 is a bit more comfy to hold then the G2. :D
