if you can handle a few before and after, use;

  ls DSC_60[37]?.NEF.

if not;

  ls DSC_603[5-9].NEF;ls DSC_60[4-6]?.NEF;ls DSC_607[0-2].NEF

there are some tricks you could use by redirecting to a file and then
listing from file, but that would involve a lot more and you would have
everything in a single column. which would be ok if using 'ls -l'.


peace out.
