so here's how it will be...

if i go for the d60, i'll be able to buy a 55-200 VR lens next month... yipee!!!

but if i wait 'til next month, i'll be able to get the d5000 at the expense of the 55-200 VR...

advice, pls...

thanks a lot...

if you are doing only photography, d60 is great value, but if you plan to do some motion video as well, d5000 have the feature.

so, i'll get d60 with lens instead.

If size matters to you, D60 is significantly smaller.

haven't got the chance to hold the d60 yet... so far only checked the d90 (w/c felt solid and secure once in your grip), and the 450d (w/c was very lightweight yet still secure coz of its rubber coating)

Thanks sir Gordon. I'm actually basing my choices to the reviews you wrote here in cameralabs (i checked other sites too like dpreview, cnet, etc.) and my favorite is actually the d80... but the stores here in saudi arabia said that their d80 stocks are already "khalas" (finished :cry: )

so my other choices are... the d60 or the new d5000 (budget-wise for now) :D

One significant plus that the D5000 has over the D60 is the articulated screen -- in fact, it's probably a more significant feature, imo, than video -- but that's just my opinion.

I would have liked to see DoF preview added to the D5000. I don't think it would have been a big deal to have included this.
