You'd have to be more specific. What exactly do you hope to shoot with the lens you intend to purchase?

take note D60 does not have built in focus drive motor so either the lens you buy has to have their own autofocus motor inside or go manual all the way.

its also a crop camera. an 18-105 is quite good for a budget walkaround lens imo. do research first.

Hi starships do you have an existing kit lens that you are using at the moment with your D60?

you need a Full body camera to make best use of wide angle lens.

dude. He's using a D60 and you aspect him to buy a D700/D3 that'll cost a few thousand? :sweat:

There are many DX-format lenses (i.e-the Sigma 10-20mm) that work fine on DSLRs that aren't full-bodies :think:

Doesn the kit lens that came with your body already cover the 18-35mm range ?

I thought you asked for something wider. There are several DX wide angle zooms. The Nikon 12-24mm is one example, and is pretty good and lightweight. And it autofocuses with the D60
