I know I would be mentally healthier if I didn't read the DPR D70/D50 Forum. But, occasionally I learn something there. Before rational people discover the Cafe, the DPR Forum seems to be the place to start out. But, I've noticed a great deal of D50 bashing in favor of the D70/D70s models there. I'm wondering if I really goofed buying the D50, but I did look at both the 70s and the 50 and felt more at home with the smaller form factor. My only complaint is that the 18-70 DX lens would have been better to get with the D50 body, but I understand Nikon's thinking on the 18-55. I just don't like the pathetic manual focus ring on this lens. I know most people here will be using the 70, 70s, or more expensive models for pro work, but has Nikon made a good camera in the D50?
