New Camera

I'm thinking of getting a new camera. My current camera is a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 which is a point-and-shoot with 7.2MP and a 10x zoom. I also have a 2.0MP Sony U-20 and a old Canon T-50 35mm film camera. The TZ3 takes pretty good pictures but I've wanted to get a digital SLR ever since I bought the Sony A100 for my dad.

Recently, Costco started carrying the Nikon D60. I've read many reviews and it seems to be a very good entry-level camera. The Costco package has the body, a 18-55mm lens, a 55-200mm lens, a 1GB SD card, and a carrying case for $825. However, Amazon has just the camera and the 18-55mm lens for $615. I think I'll probably get it at Amazon since I can save ~$60 on sales tax and get a 70-300mm Sigma zoom lens later. The 1GB SD card is not that useful anyway and a 4GB SDHC Class 6 card is only $18.

I'm still deciding whether to buy a new video game console (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) or just keep my PS2.
