    No, a friend sold his D50 and asked to be the first person I contact when I'm ready to sell it. I already gave him the kit lens that came w/ the camera for no charge... minus whale sell him the rest. :big grin:

    i've been wanting to upgrade from my d100 for a while too :hs:

    don't have it yet, coming on friday. it was hard to push the order button for me too :rofl: but i finally decided to do it by breezing through the order process and not looking back. picked up an mb-d80 and extra battery while i was at it, going to go to a local camera store to pick up a tamron 17-50 f/2.8 this week since they have it for 350 new :noes:

    good buy on the d80 though, that was the camera i wanted to upgrade to for the longest time, but then the d90 came out :hsd:

    i picked mine up from bhphoto. for a while i considered the third-party grips, but i've read some pretty bad reviews about them. i figured i'd rather cash out an extra 40-50 for genuine nikon.

    the d80 is very capable, you'd probably do better with it than i would with the d90 :rofl:

    don't want to hijack girth's thread. d300 or d700 is his p&s, it means the D3X is coming :run: :mamoru:

    you know, i wasn't feeling the rumored specs of the D3X either :o

    when space is an issue and i have to take my grip off my d100, a part of me dies inside :wtc:

    Is the jump from the D50 to the D80 worth it?

    D50 high ISO > D80 high ISO

    really? i doubt that seeing that anything above ISO 400 on the D50 sucks pretty bad.

    even 1250 doesn't bother me one bit...

    anyway - It's good to hear the d80 is going to a good home... I'll cry the day I get rid of mine...
