Everyone to their own. For 2002 it was the best around - at the low end. The real bonus is that it has a full sized body rather than a Rebel sized. D60 had a metal shell - so not like the polycarbonate 60D
3 good AF points are adequate - 5D owners survived a long time on just the central point - and has bright red AF points in the viewfinder.
Would you like to comment on the 10D and 1DS2 that came shortly afterwards?
D60 had plastic shell. Sorry. Metal chassis. Plastic shell.
ooh bright red lights!!!
10D- Waste of time, one to ignore unless very cheap. 20D better resolution, EF-S mount. Only marginally more expensive. 10D Improvements would have been enough to make film users finally switch at time, notihing remarkable now, 20D eminently more usable.
1DS2.. came quite a bit after the D60. Probably the only one on our wee list that I would consider having in my kit bag today. And even if they were launched on the same day? So what? What's your inference?
