    Canon already has a D60, probably a trademarked name

    it doesn't sound very tempting. Word is that it will only take AF-S lenses and 6mp although the price will make for a very nice entry level @ $350. Just the D50 replacement

    it's not what you think ...


    From what I've heard it going to be more of a next gen. Coolpix 8800. Basically a P&S with interchangable lenses

    nah, I doubt it. Minolta has a 5D, as does Canon

    The specs are not impressive.

    D50 > D40.

    The only real upside is that it's really cheap, and eventually i'm guessing people will be moved up the line. Is nikon going to broom the d50 when the d40 is released?
