Nikon D400 & D5000

I recently spoke to a hardcore Nikonian friend of mine, and he told me the rumors are pretty hot at Nikonians and at other forums about the Nikon D400. Some rumors speculate that the D400 will be priced around 1500US. If that really happens, I'm selling everything and moving up to FX. If, however, it's only a DX sensor, then I may consider the D5000 (if the price is right). According to SLRClub, Ken Rockwell, and Nikon Rumors, the D5000 should have a D90 (Gen 2) sensor inside a D40 sized body. Supposedly, it'll even have a swivel screen, though I can't see how it would be possible to have a swivel screen on a D40 sized body...still, some accessories over here in Korea are showing up for the D5000, so perhaps at least the name is true.
