Hi everyone,\n\nI am just about to acquire a digital SLR after having worked with kind of an\nold fashioned non-autofocus film camera for quite a while. I have a decision\nto make here. Currently, there is a Kodak DCS 560 (also known as Canon\nD6000) as well as a Canon EOS D60 on offer. The idea is to get an affordable\nbody and buy very good lenses for it. In a few years time, I plan to\nexchange the body for something more fancy (the Canon EOS-1Ds is just not\naffordable for me at the moment but it may be in a few years time).\n\nBoth -\- the Kodak DCS 560 and the Canon EOS D60-\- are Canon bodies, which is\nimportant for lens compatibility with a future model. They are also both 6\nmegapixel cameras. The main difference is that the Kodak used to be a really\nprofessional camera, which is 6 years old now, whereas the Canon EOS D60 is\na consumer market camera, which is only two years old.\n\nCan anyone give me a fair indication as to which of the two is likely to\nmake the better pictures, i.e. have the better chip, less noise, more\nsharpness? I already worked out from a few reviews on the web that the\nautofocus of the D60 is much slower than the one on the Kodak (which is\nbased on the Canon EOS 1n body, which was THE Canon body in 1994).\n\nWhich one to buy?\n\nIf anyone has some further suggestions, that would be highly appreciated as\nwell.\n\nThanks a lot,\nMalte.
