  • Derek

    Like Pentax with the “K10D Grand Prix Edition”, but Pentax did it for a reason :D

  • matt

    O God please be a fake!

    :| exactly what I was expecting, exactly what I didn’t want. It looks disgusting.

  • Siletto

    Is there anyway this could be a prank. Some taking a goldish sharpie (or something like that) and color a D60?

    That don’t think those strap lugs look right. The least Nikon could do is gold plate correctly, right? Right?

  • Blog Admin

    I am afraid this is real – look at the other pictures @ dpreview (link at the bottom of post)

  • Siletto

    Yeah, just trying to get the hope up for everybody.

  • curlykale

    A pimp’s delight, a few fake diamonds would be cute tho….

  • Ernst

    The gold lettering all over Nikon lenses released over the past nine or so years is total kitsch, too.

  • Calvin

    why only ritz has this model?

    canon used to make different colors too. 400d was in white (gray) and black versions.

    Please don’t tell me this is how Nikon is responding to the Canon 5D MKII…

    Well, the body could be silver instead of black.

    Just FYI:
    A mystery is solved.
    A problem is resolved.

  • h-man

    Whoever did it, took care of the camera strap eyelet color but forgot about the hotshoe!

  • cage

    does it at least have new features????

  • Anonymous

    Agreed, the NIKON badge itself being gold would have helped tie everything together as well.

    Nikon D60 in versione oro

    Da qualche tempo su Nikonrumors si stava parlando di una fantomatica D60 gold edition dopo averne intravisto le prime tracce informatiche.
    Ora sono arrivate le prime foto che potete vedere nella galleria “Nikon D60 Gold edition“. Non si…

  • Max

    Maybe it’ll be like those iPods, come in many different colors.

  • Rick

    Well I can see one upgrade in the picture if it is accurate. The lens is the 16-85 VR not the standard 18-55 VR lens that comes with a stock D60. For $50 more it might be worth it just for that.

    Haha! I love it! I bought one yesterday…

  • Sheldon Golomb

    I think the colors are cool. My Iowa Hawkeye colors are the same and I have a strap with their logo so this would be great.

    it is funny how that colour scheme looks fine on our lenses though… perhaps we aren’t used to it? who cares though either way I hate it..it looks cheap!

  • JustBoughtOne

    I Love it – just like buying a car, color preference is on the eye of the beholder.

  • JustBoughtOne

    fyi, mine is on backorder. They are sold so many……so far…..
