But the 1.6x multiplier does not make the lens work the way its intended to and might not suit some applications.

Drago, I think you should start by examining what kind of photography you are doing and select the lenses to suit yourself (bearing in mind 1.6x). You don't buy the lens for the D60, you buy the lens for yourself.

Well, in that case I think the D60 will be both an advantage and disadvantage to you. You might need to get ultra wide angle lens for landscape purposes. Even a 17mm focal length will only give you about 28mm on the D60, which I sometimes feel is not wide enough for landscape or streetscape. On the other hand, say a 200mm focal length will give you 320mm on the D60, so I supposed its quite handy for wildlife. Your call.

Btw, do you really need a D60? Why not consider a used D30 which I think some people are letting go for quite good prices and save some cash for lenses. I'm not really giving you any advice because I myself shoots film(I like wide angles) and will not go digital(not in the near future anyway). Just pointing out something that you have to seriously consider when making this investment. Good luck.

Maybe u guys can try the Sigma 20mm f1.8 or the Canon 35mm f2 also...this will give a equivalent 32mm or 56mm focal length...

Why not a 1D? There's immediate stock, and I'm sure it'll help with your pictures!

If you can afford a D60, or are thinking of buying one, you should also factor in the costs of a few reasonably good lenses from wide-angle to maybe tele. Sticking the D60 with only 1 lens such as the 50 f/1.8 will make you miss many shots or other interesting perspectives provided by lenses of other focal lengths.
