I did it. I purchased the camera. Should be at my house by end of week. I am really excited about it. Ok, ok, it is not the 1DS, but almost cost enough for me.

I will now have to sell my D60. I will keep the 20D for a backup camera, but I will miss my D60.

As soon as it arrives, I will give a test run and post what I think and if it is worth the money.

My dream camera,I'm not jealous at all!
Drool

I'd settle for a 350D(or the D60 if i had the money!)

Have fun with this excellent piece of kit! If you need help using it just mail it to me, about 6 months should do Wink

From what I understand, I might need help carrying it Laughing My 70-200L IS is heavy by itself and now the camera weight. Must be one heck of a battery.

I will post the specs on the D60 as soon as I get it together to give members here first shot at it. I like the D60. It captures some really great colors. It is just a bit slow now compared to the 20D.

You know they say what goes around comes around.
We start off with heavy Zeniths that are built like tanks, progress up through various plastic bodied wonders and end up with a heavy camera built like a tank. Albeit a lot more advanced than a Zenith!
(My first slr was a Zenith TTL)

Don't know about plastic camera's having got lighter. I used a solid metal professional Nikon F2 Photomic for many years and when I changed to a prosumer Nikon D200 digital it was a lot heavier. The modern equivalent professional camera the Nikon D2Xs is heavier still than the D200! The thing is most of the old camera's did not have built in motordrives, so if you did not need that facility there was no need to carry that surplus weight around.

I note many ladies changing to high end digitals from lighter consumer models are now complaining these are heavy to lug around. By the end of the year Sue you should have biceps like Popeye!

I just bought a 70-180 micro nikkor and it weighs nearly 2 pounds. With that strapped on the camera you know you are carrying it! I often wonder how these people using 500mm-1000mm telephotos go on. Do they hire bearers or what?

There is a review of your camera here Sue:-

Ive never used or even held a Nikon but they reckon their F6 film camera is even heavier!
