You wont find this camera new anymorec so why this review br brWellc the D50 is an excellent way to jump into DSLR photography without breaking the bank. This camera is well-built and even with only 6 megapixelsc itll still blow away most modern point-and-shoot cameras. br brThe key feature that the D50 has that NONE of the entry-level Nikons (ie $1000) have had since is the drive screw. What is it Basicallyc its a feature that allows this camera to autofocus lenses that dont have a focus motor built into the lens itself. On Nikon lensesc this is AF vs. AF-S. The AF lenses need the screw drive to workc whereas the AF-s lenses have the motor built in. One key lens is the Nikon 50mm f1.8 AF lens. Its a superb value lens that can be had under $100. Having the drive screw also opens up lens options from Sigmac Tamronc and other 3rd-parties and these lenses are often much cheaper as well. br brThereforec if youre hesitant about buying a DSLR because of the pricec or youre not sure of which brand you want to commit toc try out a used D50c get a couple of these cheaper lensesc and youll have a great kit for probably less than youd spend on one of the newer entry-level DSLRs. br brWhere you will find this camera lacking compared to other more modern replacements is in continuous shooting speedc no SDHC capabilityc and poorer high-ISO (800) performance. Howeverc my advice is to learn how to use a DSLR and hone your technique with something inexpensive but still versatilec then you can determine which of those attributes are actually important when considering your next purchase. br brFinding a good deal on a used D50 is a no-brainer!
