The D60 is my first DSLR that I've owned, and as my talent with photography has grown the D60 never let down. Although it is a beginner camera, it does keep some features from higher end SLR's. Picture quality is superb; from low light to outdoors the D60 is always a great camera to shoot with. The only complaints I have are the small(ish) screen and viewfinder, flimsy rubber accessory port (mine fell off and was lost within a month), and lack of a flash release lever (you can only open the flash with the camera in shooting mode). Although it has a few quirks, I absolutely love taking photos with this camera. Overall the D60 is without a doubt the BEST beginner/intermediate SLR I've used.
