    What do TS lenses do?

    anyway, D60 without the internal focus motor. screw that.

    D60 is a rebadged D40x. Kinda like what Canon did with the 20D ---> 30D.

    Weak.

    um, the tilt shift lenses are a pretty fucking big deal.

    The D60 is just as unimportant to me as the D40X was.

    One meaningless camera does not ruin a "release" that hasnt even happened yet.

    pretty much. these are the changes

    Image sensor cleaning
    Airflow control system
    Improved easy to read GUI
    In camera RAW processing
    Stop motion movies
    Active D-lighting
    -/+ 5EV compensation (same as D80)

    The D40x was a D40 with more megapixels. The D60 is a D40x with p&s junk. At least the 40D was a huge improvement over the 30D.

    The XSI, K200D, and A300 are all better cameras.

    So will that 16-85mm lense work with the D40x? How much you think it'll go for? That might be my second lense.

    That a good pick for wide angle and maybe some close-up macro shots?

    yes since it's an AF-S. it looks to be a pretty good lens. 24mm equiv :cool:

    ummm, no. the final version didn't include this feature, only the pre-production units did. :(

    When you rotate the camera vertically the menu turns with it. iPhone style.

    after being brainwashed with nikon's marketing, the d60 is starting to grow on me. d-lighting, the gui, and the rangefinder util are pretty cool. :o

    I'm interested in the 60mm macro, but not if it's going to be priced at around $1000. :wtc:
    anyone know the prices of these new lenses?

    The 60mm macro will not be priced that high. The 105mm macro was around $750 at release I think.

    Why they released another macro lens, I have no idea. Especially when the 105mm VR is not only sufficient, it's also more desirable. :ugh:

    They should have released an 85mm 1.4 AF-S. :o
