    I have a panasonic DMC-LC5. It's probably about 5-6 years old. when it was new i paid around 1300 for it. It broke and i sent it in for repair. the estimate is around $400. i just wanted to know if its worth fixing or should i look into somthing else. I can get any panasonic or sony at cost but i like the nikon d50. what;s my best option here?

    If it were me I wouldn't pay 400 bucks to repair a 5-6 year old camera.

    Can't you get a new D50 with lens for around $700 bucks?

    i can get a used nikon d70 for about 600-700 (just for the body) and the camera shop wantsabout 200 for an 18-55 lens. Is that worth buying or should i wait and get a new d50?

    Search Froogle, you should be able to find a new body for that price.
