Yikes! I returned my Nikon D60

After a week of owning a Nikon D60 and really enjoying it I have decided to return it. Why?

The first minor annoyance were hot pixels. It had at least two serious red and blue dots showing up in every picture. I was ok with that really. There is software to remove these and you could only see them if you blew up the photos.

The clincher was that the rear LCD display started to turn off and on rapidly and randomly in bright lighting situations. This I had heard about in some forums and others were returning their units.

I think I'm going to wait for the D90 (if that's the name they go with). The D80 is due to be replaced soon. That leaves me without a new toy for a few months I guess - oh well, I still have my trusty D70.
