    I recently made a thread in here and I didn't really get much help. Do I have to buy a D50 on ebay now that they're discontinued? How much should I expect to pay? Can anyone recommend any specific sellers? Online stores? :dunno:

    I'm interested in just a body for now, I'm assuming my glass I use with my N65 will work with the D50.

    I was there the other day and the only Nikon DSLR I saw was a bunch of D40's. Thanks for the link, I'll bookmark that until I get some more suggestions. I won't be purchasing it until the middle or end of June. :)

    The best help I can give you for shopping for a D50 is to tell you to buy a D70. Waaaay better and only a little more.

    I can't justify spending $125 more for a camera that essentially takes the same pictures. All you get is manual white balance, an extra command dial, and a handful of other tiny options I probably won't miss. :dunno: Plus I've held both and the D50 feels better in my hands, and that $125 would be better spent on a lens.

    the command dial and the kit lens that comes on the d70 if you do get the kit lens, is well worth it.

    i recently bought a d50 off of ebay from the seller 2ndturn (sells a ton of open box returned stuff) and they shipped me the wrong camera. sent it back to them, and they said i would have my refund within 3 days, but its been over a week and i haven't gotten my refund. so if your going to go the ebay route, stay away from this seller :o

    motherfucking dot

    Plus you get a light on the lcd display screen of the d70 so you can take pictures when it gets too dark to see the lcd. If the difference between you affording to get into the hobby or standing on the sidelines is $125 maybe you should reconsider and pick up a less expensive hobby you unprivileged motherfucker.

    all cameras essentially take the same picture, the price you pay is for the brand, features and creature comforts. for $125 more, i'd take the d70s over the d50 any day. that extra command wheel, greater camera flexibility (menus for one) and lcd light may sound minimal but they do come in very handy. plus, I don't see how you can say the d50 felt better in your hands than the d70 did because they're both essentially the same body. :dunno:

    as a follow up, after repeatedly telling them i wanted a refund they are now shipping me the correct camera. :mad: i wanted the camera 2 weeks ago for a weekend trip i was taking. now i'd still like to have it, but i really just wanted my money back so i could deal with a better seller. :o

    :rofl: You fucking elitist prick. $125 isn't going to keep me from getting into photography, I'd just rather be in the hobby with an almost identical camera in my hand and $125 in my pocket. Does that mean everyone on here who shoots with a D50 is an unprivileged amateur? I hardly think so. $125 for a command wheel and LCD light, BFD.

    That said, I really want that second command wheel. :o

    And I just realized that extra $125 is for the D70s, not the regular D70. :o I think I might pull the trigger on this one.
