    the only major differences between the d50 and d70 are some of the new features and lenses comming out that are high end for nikon arent compatible with anything below a d70, at least thats what the lens catalogue told me :dunno: For 400-700 range you could get a d50 if thats one of the ones you were looking at. Seems to be some decent deals on them /w lenses right now. (lenses are prob shitty though, but you are sharing glass wiht your dad anyway)

    Check on Nikonians.org or eBay. A lot of D70s should be availabe cheap since quite a few are dumping them for D200s.

    I would get a D70 instead of a D50 just because of the type of memory cards it uses. If you ever want to upgrade, you will be pissed you have to buy cards all over again for your new camera if you got the D50 :o

    The major difference between the d50 and d70 is the cards they use. Also, Costco has the D50 kit for $726

    I sold my D70 kit with the kit lens, extra batteries and a card for $850 several months ago.

    If you want to share lenses with your dad, get a D70 ... maybe move up to the D200 if you get more serious.
