I have a D5000, and it's a pretty nice body. I suspect you'll be able to get an adapter that will allow you to use your old Tamron lenses, but I don't know whether metering or AF will be possible, and the lack of a focusing screen makes manual focusing something of a crapshoot.

The kit lens that usually comes with the D5000, a slow-ish 17-55, is pretty nice, and the VR, combined with pretty good high ISO performance, means you can shoot in pretty low light even with the slow glass.

That said, I've heard great things about the S90s, but I've never gotten to use one, myself.
