Nikon announces D60 and lenses to boot

Ryan Block, @ryan

Okay, this Nikon DSLR isn't full-frame either, but their new low-ender is now (officially) the D60, which enters the scene with a 10.2 megapixel sensor, 2.5-inch LCD (nope, not live-view), SDHC, vibration sensor cleaning, and an even smaller body than the D40x. Nikon claims February (but also March) shipment, with no price yet given.
