    Cool.

    I wonder if it has a built-in focus motor.

    It doesn't. It's a d40x with dust-removal and some absolutely absurd gimmicks, like the ability to turn a series of pictures into a movie in-camera. Is it time to buy a Canon yet?

    But the rear display rotates with the camera! That's got to be worth the extra money! :biglaugh:

    Some people like those absurd gimmicks, even if you don't. I mean, I don't either. But then again, the D60 isn't my type of camera anyways, I'll stick with my D300, thanks.

    Why would you buy canon if you can't use it make movies out of still frames... All I see here is even more value for the drugscrewed teenage girl mind, which wouldn't buy this camera anyway infavour of using their phone, and I've totally forgotten where I was going with this.

    I am more interested in Nikon's tilt/shift lenses. Could you elaborate?

    I'll save the Sony hi-def video camcorder for my video needs... and leave the pics to my D200 happily enough.

    im disappointed... I was hoping to see a D80 upgrade to drive the price down before i buy one...

    D60 seems ok, but not worth the upgrade from the d40, and i didnt read the price but it may not be worth buying over the d40x

    It will be interesting to see if this D60 actually replaces the super-cheap D40 or if it just ends the D40x.
