The Nikon D60 is an awesome camera! Great pics, so easy to use! Just make sure to get insurance coverage through your homeowners insurance! Huge mistake on my part and thus needed the replacment body…one fly-ball at a baseball game made the original camera toast! =( Not that you can expect anything less, those baseballs are tough! haha Great camera though, you wont be disappointed!I purchased this model from Amazon after seeing it in a local camera store. It is also my second Nikon D60 as I had the standard (not GOLD) model from [...], but returned that after realizing I wanted and/or could get along with just a single zoom lens instead of the two in the [...] Package. based on my small time with the initial D60 and now this GOLD version with the Tamron 18-200mm lens, I am not “crazy” about the picture or operational quality. Years ago I used Minolta SLR’s and favored them over the automatic pocket 35 mm cameras. I enjoyed the manual control and flexibility they offered. Once DIGICAMS became lower priced and more readily available, I used those. My current DIGICAM, the Panasonic TZ5 actually takes better pictures on automatic setting than either of the two Nikon D60’s I have tried. I like the D60 for the manual settings and creativity, but do not think the D60 is any better on Auto settings than what I already had. I wanted an entry level DSLR, and did not want to pay more for higher priced (and probably better) DLSR’s but probably should have. The manual settings are great however and I enjoy having a “real” camera to experiment with. If you want a DSLR simply to replace your pocket DIGICAM, and just use for “AUTO” or “PROGRAM” settings, keep your current pocket camera and do not buy this D60. But if you, like me, want an “entry level” and reasonable priced DSLR, the D60 may be for you. I cannot say I am terribly happy or dissapointed overall, I just think this camera could be better at “AUTO” and “PROGRAM” modes. Certainly, I would recommend a “faster” lens than I got, the Tamron 18-200 mm Zoom XR.Bought this for work (I’m a reporter) and it has been a pleasure to use. Very easy to use and takes great pictures! Just remember you need to buy a lense because this doesn’t come with one!The D60 works well, is small, lightweight, and compact, and user friendly. It is a good camera. However, there is NOT much difference between the D40 and D60 other than megapixels and price. To be honest, 6 megapixels are plenty enough to make a 16X20 print. In fact, the D60 is less sensitive to light and has a slower shutter speed, creating a higher chance for blurry pictures. The glass (lense) is what’s most important, not the body. So my advice–forego the overpriced D60, save yourself $300 with the D40 and buy a super good external (bounceable) flash or put towards a better lense. This is what I wish I WOULD have done.
