Nikon D3000 a piece of junk?

This lemon really does seem to be the odd man out in the Nikon line-
up. The D5000 is far better. Did Nikon have some CCDs left over and
had to use them up? Seems like the D40/40x got much better reviews
and they came before the D3000.

Yes, it has older CCDs.

As you note, the D40 was a much earlier camera, and doubtless peoples
expectations have risen since then. The D5000, as you note, is excellent.

It's definitely not a lemon.

Like every other manufacturer's entry-level DSLR, it's kind of ...

.... entry-level.

the planet?

Better than Sony's entry-level junk using the same sensor.

Not Nikon, Kodak's are/were the worst JPEGs. You did know that you can
alter the quality settings on the D3000 so suit your own needs, I suppose?
And if you must, you can use RAW and bypass JPEGs altogether.

I wonder if Rich ever actually shot with the camera.
