I recently came across a site(don't remember which one)that stated the 6000 can be used in P and S modes with a G lens, but the 6006 can't be used in any mode. I thought it was a mistake because the 2 bodies are almost the same except for the AF and built in flash on the 6006. Sure enough, the site is correct. With the 18-70, the 6000 will display the aperture the camera has selected in P or S, And displays the min aperture in A or M. The 6006, however, displays fEE in all modes. I thought that was strange.
