I own this camera currently. What is the worth of this camera now?? Above you say it's worth $1,999 for the basic body. It's obviously been a 11 years since this article was written.

I was looking through B & H used cameras online today, and saw the D-60 in (9) excellent condition for $159.00, and bought it. I've been looking for one for two years and the lowest price I could find for average condition was $250.00, until today. Were you happy with yours?
