I tend to agree with these thoughts about the D60. I have had a D40 since last May. In looking at another camera with more capabilities, aside from the megapixels, it just did not offer much more to me. I toyed aroud with getting a D80, but it has been around forever, doesn't offer a lot of the features that the D60 does, and yes, you are still into a polycarbonate body. So, at more than 3 times the cost of the D40, I took the plunge for a D300. It kills me that this is what you have to do in the Nikon lineup to get into a magnesium alloy body construction. But overall, I am happy. I'd say, if you can do it, go for it. You'll be happier in the long run. There are all kinds of rumors swirling now that the D80 is about to be replaced. I never thought I'd see a d-SLR be on the market as long as that classic has been out. But, we are seeing so many new advances in such a short period of time. It is probably time that Nikon finally retire it.


Now, the rumors are flying around that either a D90 or D80S is going to be introduced in less than a month. I cannot believe the long shelf life that the D80 has enjoyed. It is a great bridge from the consumer level to the prosumer. Personally, I think that Nikon needs to add a magnesium-alloy body camera, maybe in the $1000/$1200 price range. More than the D80, less than the D300. Just a thought, if they want to define the playing field for Canon. Nikon needs to become proactive, and not continue to be reactive.

what's a Nikon D40d? is this a region specific model or a typo for what should be D40x?


I purchased a D60 July 2009. The camera is not supposed to have Live View, but it did. From the time I bought it until 1-1/2 weeks ago it had Live View. Has anyone else had this with their D60??

Literature is a kind of intellectual light which, like the light of the sun , may sometimes enable us to see what we do not like.
