MELVILLE, N.Y. (Jan. 28, 2008) – Nikon, Inc., today introduced the new D60 Digital SLR camera, shipping standard with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, which provides consumers with stunning picture quality and versatility in an easy-to-use, compact camera design. The D60 joins Nikon’s award-winning line of D-series digital SLR cameras and shares a form factor similar to the D40 – Nikon’s smallest D-SLR camera ever. With 10.2 effective megapixels and a wealth of innovative and user-friendly features, the D60 enables both photo enthusiasts and those new to digital SLR photography to capture incredible images like never before.
Figures this would come out a month after I bought I my D80 … but on the other hand; since the D60 is just an upgraded D40x, then I wouldn’t be able to use my older Nikon AF lenses on this body.
But for someone looking to step-up from a digital point-and-shoot camera, this should be a good entry into the DSLR market, with the same image quality as the D80 or D200, but a much lower price.
