Whats the main difference between the D60 and D80?
The D80 has a built in AF motor so you can use the older Nikon AF lenses. Two adjustment wheels, one for aperture, one for shutter.
THe important diffrence is that the D80 will use all of the lenses as Kegger said. That makes it the better chioce over the D60.
This is easy: D80...for ^^^ reasons!
i'd also go for a d80. i currently own a d60, but if I was more familiar and understood more before I bought my d60, i would've gone for a d80 instead.
the D60 is great, but when the need comes to upgrade lenses, you'll have to settle for the higher priced version of lenses because they have to be 'motorized' for them to Autofocus with the D60.
commander mode isn't available with the D60 also which disappointed me a lot.
I owned a D70. When it came time to upgrade, I considered the D80 but settled on the D60. Main reason? Size. I wanted a smaller, lighter camera body. I often chose not to carry my D70 because it was too bulky and took my Canon IXUS 70, instead.
Yeah, lenses are a problem and my old 70-200mm lens now has to be manually focused, which means I don't use it much.
