Looks like the new Nikon DSLR is a D5000, a replacement to the D40/D60 line.  Also in the works, a 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DX lens with AF-S focusing, so D40/60/5000 users get a 15-36mm FOV equivalent lens.  The real neat trick of the D5000 is the swivel LCD, which will benefit those users who use Live View.  Actually, I think a swivel LCD is an awesome idea for shooting ground-level macro shots.  I also like the incorporation of the D3-style D-pad with separate center button.  I wish my D300 had that feature!

I'll post more news when the official press release is available.  Here are some images to hold you over in the meantime.
