I bought a D60 a couple of years ago..really like it. I had always used a film camera until then. It's getting so hard to find good film so I made the switch. Glad I did.
The D60 is very easy to use and would recommend it to anyone who's just starting out and needs something more than a point and shoot.

This was my first DLSR camera and I love it. Easy to use and and takes excellent photos.

My first DSLR, that was bought for me as a gift.  It is still clicking and has served me well.  I have had it for about 4 years. Light and fits in my hand easily. I take a lot of kids soccer pictures with it.   I am hoping to one day upgrade to a D610!
