I've had the D40, D40x, D50, then now I just got the D80. I loved all of them. For me Nikon was a good choice because I had some lenses from my N65. If you're used to the D60 already, then why not just get that. But you will miss out on some cheaper lenses due to the fact that the D60 doesn't have a focus motor. If you go to KEH Camera: Used Cameras, Digital Cameras, Film Cameras, Laptop Computers and More. then you will find some good deals on some used bodies.
