i had a chance to use a d-60 last fall. a client (i,m a fishing guide) let me shoot all day with his while he fished. i must say that the autofocus was very quick, but did seem to hunt in low light as well with a f 3.5 lens. the overall controls were remarkably different as if the two companies try to be contrary. they were'nt any easier to work and had me confused for quite a while (lifelong nikon user). i also had my d100 and while it mostly stayed in the pelican case i took several shots a lunch and of a fish that was caught right after so i had a chance to review the shots of that fish from both cameras. also of the scenery from the same positions. imho the d-60 seems to lack the color,contrast and depth of the nikon. it was a canon lens 28-80 and i used a nikkor 28-105. the client had my photos with the nikon made into large prints that he had to get the files from me after i e-mailed some samples to him. that tells me the most, i don't think he would have if the d-60 shots were as good. i was not impressed with the images and apparently neither was he. the camera itself worked flawlessly all day and i took over 100 photos with it. i was trying not to be bias, and i think i acomplished that until i reviewed the images. i burned his files to a disk for him since he was from out of town and was running low on memory, so i compared them on the same monitor. they were loaded with nikon software so i'm not sure if that has any effect. i hope that is clear enough, i was fortunate to have the experience and i hope that helps. it's a big investment and i would even suggest renting each if you are teetering on the fence. good luck.
