A camera’s controls and features are obviously very important, but the quality of images that the camera can produce is crucial as well. To give you a better feel for quality of images the D5000 can capture, we've included a few sample images here. Overall, we were pleased with the images we captured using the D5000. Colors were accurate and focusing was crisp. All of our test shots were captured using the AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens.
