I am a little disappointed by the D60 because I was expecting a D80 replacement. The new lenses are a little boring as well. Nikon’s consumer grade zoom lens lineup just became even messier with the introduction of the DX Nikkor 16-85 f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. The other two lenses are more targeted towards professional photographers in an effort to revamp Nikon’s aging full frame lens offerings. I guess it becomes necessary with the recent introduction of the D3 full frame (FX format) DSLR camera.
