What is wrong with D60, why no one love it here over d40?
Apr 9, 2009

I'm a canon shooter exploring the idea of buying a cheapo nikon 18-105vr and either d40/d40x/d60 as my point &shoot. Aside from the 6 vs 10 vs 10mp, what are the major difference between these 3 cameras?

What I find is odd is the numerous post about people selling their newly bought D60 for an older D40. I also notice people in this forum seem to have an universal love-fested for the 6mp D40 oldies, yet no one seem to have any passion for the newer D60.

Is there something wrong - or less right - in the newer d60???
Why the biasis?

Another question about ebay pricing: it seem that D40's love fest = higher ebay resell price. Should I just ebay for a D40x / D60 instead? or is there something in D40 that is really special and worth "almost" the same price as a used d60 on ebay?

Thanks for any input you can give me. I'm not trying to start a flame war between D60 vs D40, but I do find it odd.
