The D60 was a very capable 6 megapixel camera with a APS-C sized sensor, and it had a pro body construction.

BUT it's technology is ancient, since it's day Canon came out with the DIGIC processor (DRebel, 10D, 1d, 1dS) and now the DIGIC-II processor (DrebelXT, 20D, 5d, 1ds, 1ds-mkII) that is in the current line of bodies. The image handeling capabilities of the current sensors and the DIGIC-II processor are quite amazing, even at high ISO speeds. The new processors also are responsible for the high operational speed of the new cameras.

I just can't see considering the D60 against the Rebel. The D60 was/is good in its day, but it's day is gone unless you already own one.

save an extra month and get the Rebel XT.. it will be worth it in the long run for its features, speed, and noise handling..
