    Ok.... I want to buy a flash. I will use it to take pictures of my son inside primarily and to fill outside. I have a D60......which flash should I buy. I would love to have the new sb900.....but there is no way I am spending 500 bucks on one. I am looking for a reasonably priced one. Thanks everyone.

    I was going to say the same thing - an SB600 - great flash that doesn't totally break the bank.

    I have a d60 with a sb-600, and i love it.
    A sb-900 is probably more than you need unless you plan on getting slaves and the whole strobist setup

    I just picked up a SB-600 for my D90 and after one night of just playing around with the settings, i'm in love! It works great, and i was very happy with the result of the wireless CLS. I'm not sure if the D60 has the CLS option though.
