Seems like a lonely place on these forums...Good to see another Nikon owner posting something! I've had a D70 for a couple of years now, great camera, if the D50 is anything like it you won't be disappointed, let us know how you get on with it.

Proud D50 owner, regular user and fan! I have done macro work, a dog show and landscapes in the Lake District with this camera and it is just the best!
Can't complain, especially at the price. I didn't go for the kit but got myself a Sigma 17-70mm Macro F2.8 lens which together with my Tokina 200mm F2.8 (which now turns into a 300mm with the C sensor) makes for a stunning combination.
I love it!
I'm in the market for a new camera (my old 1 being a basic olympus mju 300 compact - which to be fair isnt that good a camera had no manual features but did the job I needed of it at the time). and I'm toying with the idea of either a high end compact, or stepping out onto a good learning dslr.
I know little about different manual settings and want to learn with a camera that has manual functions that I can experiment with, however it would be good to use auto modes for those occasions I dont have time to experiment with whilst I'm learning. I would also like a camera with a very good zoom x10 or similar and at least 6M so I can make good A4 prints or larger.
from your comments the D50 is looking like a good choice for a beginner DSLR, If anyone has any advice I'm happy to take it on board! Please be nice we all have to start somewhere... :D
