about 8 months.
yeah been debating if its worth it to upgrade from the d60 to the d90? or just invest in some new lenses....
I upgraded in about a year form a XTi to a D90.
I was just at Best Buy holding some cameras and checking out the 7D and man do I hate entry level cameras as far as build is concerned. They are so damn generic compared to is better models. Granted that is not really a big thing when getting a camera but I had my XTi for a year and it sure looked like crap with scratches and some other issues on it...which I would think would effect the resale value. I got my D90 in January and seeing how it will almost be a year, my camera still feels like it is brand new. I could sell it today and get almost all of my money back. I always think if I can do it over again, I wish I would have just got a better camera and not an entry. It was kind of a waste of money.
I'm in about the same position at 8 months right now, also looking to up the D60. I agree with the mid-range/prosumer camera's do feel better, I was also in BB playing around with the D90, 50D, and 7D. I'm contemplating on a 40D or a 50D mostly, the T1i sounds great it's just that one of the major reasons I'm changing is that I need a bigger body because my hands are quite big. Is the 50D worth it over the 40D? For lenses it'd be the 28-135, most likely a 17-40 L, and I guess a nifty fifty. Nothing against Nikon, I will miss my 35mm 1.8, I just want to play the other side of the field,
