Oop, it looks like Japanese retailer Softmap pulled the trigger on its Nikon D5000 page a little early -- it went briefly live earlier today, confirming that the rumored DSLR with articulating 2.7-inch display
is indeed real, and most likely set to be announced at tomorrow's Austrian press event
. Apart from the movable screen, it looks like the D5000 will be a pretty hot blend of the D60 and D90, complete with D-movie mode, 11-point AF system, and ISO 3200 sensitivity, all for a body-only price of ¥76,320 ($762). Whether or not that pricing will make it to the US and tempt would-be Canon T1i
buyers right out of their shoes remains to be seen -- we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
