    be patient, wait for a few months, perhaps you can buy a 2nd hand AF-S 35mm f1.8 at around 300 plus...during that period, can save up.

    1) 55-200mm lens (only have 18-55mm lens)
    2) Flash lights (don't have external flash lights)
    3) Iphone (lol, only have w800i sony erricsson)
    Obviously Option 3 - The Iphone!

    Why:
    Simple experiment, try using your 55-200mm lens or flashlights to
    1) listen to MP3 music
    2) make phone calls using your Flashlights
    3) connecting to the internet
    4) pen in calender events
    5) show off to your non-photography friends (if you still have any)

    Now, try using your Iphone to perform the above.

    oh no...tink my d60 cannot put.
    I own an iphone, but in this context, iphone is out.
    Actually the AF 50mm f/1.8D you can put on ur D60, as nikon mount is the same.
    However you won't get autofocus with that lens because D60 don't have motor on it's body, it relay on the motor on the lens (afs lens).
    Maybe u wanna watch till march and see the price of the new nikon afs 35mm f/1.8 lens. Hopefully it's about the price of $300...
    (i'm waiting too...)

    icic. btw, 35mm f1.8 focal length too short. performance cannot get close liao....prefering 50mm. nikon should sell the 35mm $200 max lol.

    50mm about 200, so save more & get both.
    This flash is much cheaper elsewhere. By the time you ship it in, its only 200. =)

    Cheers.
    Looking for Canon 100mm F2 USM :)
