    Looky Here

    Doesn't look all that different to the D40x, except it has a dust removal system and comes bundled with an 18-55mm VR lens.

    There are a few physical differences, albeit small ones, but that's the problem getting things right in the first place, difficult to improve!

    There are a number of differences electronically, including better high ISO performance. Smile

    OK boys and gals the Nikon line up:

    D40X, D60, D80, D200/D300, D3.

    Just intrigued as the pros/cons of the D60 and who it is being targeted at.

    Small mistake there. It's the D40X that the D60 is replacing. Therefore

    The Nikon line up:

    D40, D60, D80, D300, D3.

    Seeing it listed at on a UK retailer :

    Nikon D60 plus 18-55mm ED II 499

    Suppose its going head to head with the

    Canon EOS-450D Body + 18-55mm IS Kit 679

    I keep wondering why Canon wont come out with an entry level model to hit that end of the market?

    Still think we will see a D60x very soon and a D90 and then a new version of the D3 with more megapixels. Then again my crystal ball might be on the wrong channel Smile

    I keep wondering the same thing. The 400/450D is 'entry level' but there definitely room for a cheaper model.

    In the film days, Canon did have a lower tier to their range (EOS 3000). It seems a strange omission for Canon who were at the forefront of lowering DSLR prices when the 300D came out.

    Maybe the 400D has been selling really well, and Canon are happy with things as they are? I also notice that the 350D is still on sale (329) - maybe Canon are happy to sell the old stock (of what is still an excellent camera) rather than complicate things by throwing a new model into the mix?

    You could be spot on with that one.

    I don't think thought its the best idea, the Nikon D40 is so well suited to people who want something close to a DLSR but not complicated.

    I think Canon 400/450d are very very good value for money but perhaps would scare off the same market as the D40/D60 is aimed at.
