The Nikon D60 sits in an odd niche in the market. It's not the least expensive well appointed digital SLR you can buy, and for just a few dollars more you can buy a substantially superior camera. Imaging performance shines when it comes to noise, and the responsiveness while shooting is...

I've been using this camera with the kit lens and another one I bought for portraits. (50mm f1.8) I must add, to potential buyers that if you are considering getting this one or the D90 remember that the D60 doesn't come with a motor so you need your lenses to come with a motor if you...
