From what I have seen, it looks like a pretty nice little camera, perfect for beginners. I learned on an N6006 which the N60 later replaced, it taught me a lot. I tried to avoid using the auto-program modes as much as possible, I learned a heck of a lot more that way.

You may also want to look at Canon's Rebel 2000, it looks pretty similar to the N60. But since I am biased towards Nikon, I say go for the N60.

The N60 is certainly a capable camera, but what's most important is the lens and/or lenses you attach to it...

I have looked at both the rebel and the N-60 the n-60 just felt better in my hands. I am also planing on getting a tamron 70-300 mm with it

If the N60 feels good, DO IT! The Tamron 70-300 would be a good lens for starters...

The N60 is definitely a good way to go. The only reason why I don't use mine anymore is because I'm no longer a 'beginner'

I use the N70 now because it has a faster frame advance, and memory functions that remember my favorite settings.

But definitely go with the N60; it's a good way to get started. And you can't go wrong by going with Nikon

The N60 is a good camera, but if you can afford the few extra bucks, I would go for the N70 which is what I use. It has faster auto foucus and better metering. The faster auto focus comes in real handy when shooting moving airplanes.

I still think the N60 would be a better choice than an N70 for beginners. The camera layout is far less confusing on the N60. Plus, you can save a few hundred bucks and put it towards a quality lens (which is far more important than a camera body).

But, if you want a camera that you will be able to "grow into" and have for 10-20 years, I would go with an N90s. I have had one for almost 5 years now and the thing is an iron clad. I still use it as a backup camera to my F5, even though it has been through hell and back.

Hi,
the lastest N-80 has already released here in Hong Kong.
It sales as HKD 3300, approx. USD 423.
I think it will sales at around USD 500 all around the world.
Because Hong Kong supply a very cheaper price, also cheaper than Japan.
This body is much more better than the N-60(F60).
2.5fps, 1/4000s, X 1/125s, 5 AF area(similar as F100/F5).
So I am highly recommend this camera body to you.
