Nikon D5000 Store Leak

Nikon's rumored entry-level D5000 DSLR may have been confirmed today by a brief posting of a product page (since concealed) at Japanese retailer Softmap. The listing supports the existence of a swiveling, 2.7-inch LCD and suggests a major upgrade over the D60 as a whole, including a movie mode, 11-point autofocus (up from just 3) and light sensitivity up to at least ISO 3,200.

Few other details are evident, though the D5000 has previously been rumored as getting a 12-megapixel sensor and should inherit much of the image processing of the D90. Sofmap's listing has the camera shipping to Japan on May 1st for the equivalent of $847, though an actual announcement is believed as early as tonight and will likely see the actual price of the camera pushed down for any US release.
