    True, but having that on my D90 it's kinda nice... and it's only $50 more than the D60 right now.

    I'm thinking the high ISO performance might be on par with the D5000 too, which would be sweet.

    I think I would forgo the D3000/60 and either get a second D90 body or save up for a D300 before they become impossible to get.

    That should happen sometime in early 2011 or so.

    Probably not. The D3000 uses a CCD with specs that seem to match the D60 (and D80 & D200). The D5000 uses the same CMOS chip found in the D90 and similar to the D300 (possibly a match to the new D300s) with only slight differences in the processing engine (DXOmark rates the D5000 as a near match to the D90 and both very slightly better than the D300).

    Bummer! Didn't see the CCD part in the specs but you're right...

    When those old D300's hit $1k, I'm snatching one up... if I can resist the temptation to buy a D300s that is.

    There was a refurb D300 available earlier today for $1300.

    If the price stays the same till it's available, you get the D300s's AF video and extra memory card essentially for free compared, to today's price of a D300.
