Just on the heels of the camera's official announcement, Nikon has now announced official pricing for its new 10.2MP entry-level dSLR. The camera, which will be available in stores in February 2008, will cost about $750 for a kit that includes the camera body, as well as an 18-55mm lens with Nikon's Vibration Reduction optical image stabilization.
Nikon's original announcement of the D60 said that pricing would be available 30 days prior to the camera's availability. Since January has 31 days, and February has 29 days this year, thanks to the joy of the leap year, Nikon is keeping true to its word. Even if your local camera store is closed 30 days from now (this announcement went public at 11pm Eastern Standard Time), there will still be one day left in February for you to run out and buy the D60, as long as everything goes according to Nikon's master plan.
