Pros: Great picture quality.
Cons:
AF hunting in low light conditions. Underexposure.

I bought this D-SLR camera second-hand from a professional photographer on eBAY. I am loving every second of it. I have only used point and click cameras so far & this is my first digital camera.

I am using it with a 28-135mm USM IS lens, and the image quality is outstanding. I have used the camera mostly for portrait, arhitechture and macro photography. Magnifying images up to 8x12 have shown abs no issues compared to 35mm. I like the manual white balance feature and also the range of ISOs. Flash does a good job at night time.

I love the feel of the metal body, and have simply not been able to let go of the camera ever since I bought it.

The camera tends to underexpose sometimes even in automatic mode (also in manual mode), and I thought it was a problem with the lens. I am reading however, that multiple D60 users have reported this problem. This is a concern for me, but I have noted that every time the camera underexposes, the image on the screen catches it, so I can increase exposure to solve the problem. Another issue is AF hunting, although it is not so much of a problem as the underexposure.
