not really as there is a buffer of 3 photos. but i notice a lag of around 3-4 sec before the reviews of the taken photo shows up. I am shooting in raw mode.

The Sandisk Ultra II is pretty slow if you are mostly shooting RAW. On my A700 for example, RAW files usually take less than 1 second to show up for review if I use Ultra III or faster. However, the D60 is an ultra-low-end, budget DSLR. Nikon did not put a fast memory interface in it. DPReview did some tests:
