I was given a used D60 in great shape today. It's kind of neat to see where technology has come from in the last 10+ years. My first DSLR was actually a D60, gave it to a friend to learn on. I went from the D60 to the 40D, 50D, several rebels and now a 60D. I'm kind of excited to go back and see what I really learned over the years, what I can accomplish with older technology. I've also acquired a Pentax K-X to try out different formats. If I have really evolved or just used the new technology as a crutch to get what I need. Comments or thoughts welcome.

You might be pleasantly surprised at what the "OLD" 6 meg sensor can do - they produce very sharp images.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

A bit like comparing a Honda CBR1000RR to a 1978 Ducati 900SS.

I love older Italian V-twins ;)

Yes they do. I'm more of a Moto Guzzi LeMans fan. I've owned two.

This.

I'm always surprised when I go back and look at the raw files from my 8mp 20D.

The 20D can produce some pretty impressive RAW files.
