I recently checked my shutter release count, and it's around 20,000, so my D60 is relatively "young" (or at least I think 20K is "young"). This weekend, I was taking several shots of the same scene -- same lighting, same settings, same subjects -- and the photos got progressively darker. I shoot on manual. After a few more shots, the photos were almost black, even when I switched to auto and used flash. What is going on? The photos are almost black no matter what setting I have the camera on - auto, manual, with flash, etc. I also tried a new battery and that didn't change anything.

I tried my Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens on another Nikon, and it was just fine, so I apparently have a problem with my D60 body. . .but what? and where do I go to diagnose/fix it? Is it an expensive fix?

I am hoping there's something really obvious I am not thinking of - maybe I changed a menu setting without knowing it, but I've tried everything I can think of!

I appreciate any help!
