Cool fella!! But pity need to MF on the D60.
The rangefinder indicator in the viewfinder helps and is accurate. I'm used to manual and stick the 1.4 to my D60 most of the time. Plus I prefer lugging around the light body. Super lens, can turn night into day!
Now if I took both the original FX image and the cropped DX image and printed both to 4R size, fully filling the 4R frame. Are you telling me that in both pics the ball size still remain unchanged? We know that the ball from the print of the cropped DX image will be bigger. Why? Precisely because it is enlarged.
Now if the ball is magnified, so will any movement captured in it. So the answer to your question is yes, if you cropped a pic from D3X and present it onto a media of the same size, the 1/focal length rule will need to factor in the crop factor.
If you still not convince, let's take a look at this wiki (especially the section "Secondary effects").
And don't worry, no agitation taken.
P/S: apology to TS for hijacking this thread for this discussion.

no worry bro..
AFAIK, ISO setting will tell you how much light your sensor will amplify. The lower the ISO the less sensitive the sensor to light and lesser distortion on the picture. Here is what I do with my D60. when taking night shots I use ISO 100-400. then controll my aperture and shutter speed depending on my ISO settings. (I'm using manual mode by the way) so if I'm using ISO 100, I make sure that my apperture is wide enough I guess f5-f8 then use a shutter speed of 1 second (really depends on the outcome). I always use tripod on night photography. A lot of trial and error actually, thats the good thing about Digital Photography.. hehehe.. you don't have to worry about the amount of films you would use.
I took this shot using ISO 800, i forgot the aperture and shutter speed settings as this was taken about a three months ago.
This may not be a good example though.
A good example I can think of is digital PnS. The actual focal for a particular model is given as 6.4-32mm, which gives a 135-format equivalent of 28-140mm angle of view. Does it mean that you could handhold to 1/32 at the maximum zoom since the actual focal length is just 32mm? I don't think so unless you have really steady hands or you used vibration reduction.

This whole thread is a bit of a headache to look at... don't meant to be a knob, but why the hell do people not spell things out fully, there seems ot be a trend on this forum for that . But OP - I just wanna ask you, what the hell do you expect - use the goddamn flash, and why use 1/10 or so for shutter with a flash, wtf?
