Sold D50, Tried D90 - Going back to D40 or D60...
Oct 9, 2009

With regret I sold my D50 thinking it was time to upgrade. After reseach I thought I would like the D90 as my next camera.

After trying the D90 it just didn't feel right for me. Too big, heavy and a bit too complex for my taste.

I think the right camera for me is the D40 or D60. I want a simple camera that takes good images without a lot of fuss. I know my way around using P, A, S and M controls. I liked the D50 high ISO images from the camera and from what I have read the D40/D60 is even better.

Here is my dillema. I found a new D40 w/18-55 non VR for $315. I also found a new D60 w/ 18-55 VR + 55-200 VR for $550. These are from legitimate brick and mortar stores that are clearing them out.

If you were making this purchase, which would you select and why.

I appreciate your help.
