D60 - The black sheep?... (vs D40)
Feb 23, 2009

I have the D60 and find it to be a very nice camera with consistently good results. I am curious though as to why people talk in favor of D40 with such passion, while the D60 receives much less or no acclaim. I've seen some beautiful samples from the D40 and I also believe it is a lovely cam, but at the same time I believe the D60 is at least as good. I wonder if this obvious bias towards the D40 is purely because of its cheaper price or whether the D40 is indeed judged to be a better performer than the D60. If so, in what areas?

To put it more realistically (photographically), if you were offered a camera as a birthday present (therefore price does not come into it) and you had to choose between D40, D40x and D60, which one would you go for and WHY?
