    D50 + $400

    Pro body plus the ability to change all the settings on the body..I'm not really concerned with the MP count the 8fps is hawt

    But the more I look into it I don't think I'm going to give up my D50...while the pro body would be great, I think the 50 is an awesome camera for what I'm doing right now.

    I think I'll just wait and save up a little to get a D300. :o

    Get a used D200 or get a D300. To be honest I don't love the sensor in the D2h and while 8fps is cool (I have 8.5fps in my 1D MK II) it's not something I see as a major issue. I basically use it when the shutter speeds are just below where I can reasonable hand-hold the camera because one out of 8 or 10 frames will usually be sharp when my hands and breathing are really steady.

    Unless you shoot sports, etc, not sure you'll need it.

    the D2H will probably get replaced sometime in the near future...i'd get a d300 w/ grip instead.

    I have both a D50 and a D2h, the ONLY reason I got the D2h was because I wanted the higher FPS. If I had it to do over I would have just gotten a new D200 or D300 now...
