We've just got hold of a Nikon D5000 and put some full size sample pictures online

The Nikon D5000 DSLR camera officially goes on May 1st 2009 – but we here at What Digital Camera have only gone and got our hands on a production D5000 and taken some full size images for you to run your eyes over. Of course our full Nikon D5000 review will follow in the imminent future – at least once we’ve snapped a good bunch of memory cards full of photos and reviewed the D5000 for all its worth.

Until then you’ll have to run your eyes over our preview gallery – Nikon D5000 sample gallery here
