    I previously had a 350D, but returned it thinking that the price would drop dramatically soon (purchased the kit for 1g @costco). so i've decided now that i'm gonna pick up a d50 with the 18-55 DX kit lens, and it's at a nice price, little over 500, really can't say no to that after i sell my P&S canon. :wiggle:

    nikon or canon, dont matter. who the fuck cares about what brand eqiupt you carry around. its the photog behind the camera that counts.

    so guys

    i've been looking around for a d70 lately, and i've found some with the 18-70 lens (or is it 17-80?), the kit lens, for around 750 (2 yrs old... not sure if i want something already out of warranty). i feel like it's kind of a big jump, at least 200 more than a d50 outfit, and especially for a camera that's a couple years old. i've seen that the major diff is one step in shutter speed at the high end, d50 has a somewhat improved sensor for noise, the second dial, what else?

    i would love to pick up a d70s kit for 750 or so used, but i can't find much available.

    also gotta pass out some :love: to nikon, i used a d70 for a few hours after i had my 350d, and it felt pretty damn diff in terms of shutter lag, feel, etc. can't wait to get snapping again
