    Not far off that price to be honest (they do say or nearest offer)...

    I got a new D60 for around £340 with the 18-55 VR kit, I would probaly go down the new route as you dont know how its been treated.

    I must admit I was thinking more around the £290 mark or would that be an insult. It's been advertised for a while.

    @ Pavers - Is the D60 the upgraded version of the D40??

    Yup i believe it is the upgraded version.

    Its 10.2 megapixels. My first slr so dont know too much about them, but i am happy with it.

    I bought the d40 kit new on amazon a few months ago for £280 then bought the extra lens for around £150 so it's not really a bad price they are selling for
    great camera by the way:thumbsup:

    It does seem like a good piece of kit I watched a review online and seemed very user friendly. I'll do a little more reading on it think I'll take the plunge.

    Thanks for your advice everyone I've left some rep
