Very good camera, think there are newer versions now so the price is coming down. Thought it had been cheaper before though. Think it's been posted several times.

I went in to Jessops the last time this was postedto have a feel of it. The assistant told me that in his opinion it was a poor camera and not worth the money. He started getting all technical on me and lost me but basically said it was full of very cheap parts and put together badly - he had a lot come back for repairs etc.

Dixons had it for £220 online previously but there was never any stock.

He was talking nonsense! You don't need to look far on the internet to find lots of terrific reviews of this camera, from pros and customers alike. I've got one and it's well made, a joy to use and takes great photos. Maybe he was probably on comission to sell another brand!

Posted several time, same retailer and £10 cheaper each time!

This is an excellent camera but the D60 is a much better buy just now given that there is a £30 cashback deal from Nikon just now.

As posted elsewhere, you ban pick up the D60 from Jessops for only £270 after the Nikon cashback and also get a free 4GB SD card.

I've had two branches tell me completely the reverse - recommended this model above the Sony A200 on grounds of reliability - said it was incredibly rare to have one in for repair! Also extolled the virtue of the processor/image quality.

Other point about the D60 on here is a valid one considering it's an extra £50.

The d60 is a much better buy.

I have come across a few people having problems with the low end nikons (built in flash failure and shutter problems) - but then there are a lot of low end nikons around.
