    Hi,
    I have a D60, also with weatherproof sealing - I need to put the camera underwater and really don't want the hassle of a housing.

    The Nikon 1 AW2 should do it :-)

    Thanks,

    Welcome,

    Would this be your main camera, or a second camera.

    Hi,
    My main camera. I currently have a D60 plus 18-55 and 70-300.
    Lots of travel and hiking...and fly fishing.
    Wanting all weather capability, as well as submerged 'release shots' of fish being returned. I'll also do family stuff, outdoor stuff and some product photography: semi closeup...
    - point and shoot (with options)
    - interchangeable lenses
    - waterproof

    Don't want much, do I :-)

    The AW1 came SO close, but I just felt like the menu system and basic options were a little lacking in comparison, although it does tick ALL the other boxes.

    This is why I'm hoping an AW2 would fill in the gaps.

    Thanks,

    OW

    As mikew said above Weatherproofing is not Waterproofing. The D60 (I have one), if submerged, will fill with water very quickly.

    Glad I saw this thread. I've been looking for a reason to get a new camera. Now to go find a lake.

    This donut scented car freshener will more than pay for itself next time I get pulled over.

    I almost bought it too. But its so old, it could do more with a modern sensor. Also only 2 lenses suck. The 11mm 2.8 is fine but the zoom is just to dark, I lose the advantages of the big sensor if I have to use higher ISOs to compensate for that aperture values of this lens.
