Nikon D50 w/ 50mm/f1.8 lens?




Oh, it's camera shopping time soon. My girlfriend is buying me a decent dSLR camera, and I'm pretty sure I'm getting a Nikon D50, after reading tons of reviews.

I knew I wanted to go with Nikon or Canon. The two biggest SLR makers with entry-level to professional cameras and tons of lenses, so that I could start now and over time, build up equipment that I can still use. Doesn't appear the same with other SLR makers. And I went with Nikon over Canon because of two things. First, it seems like the cheapest Nikon lenses (all I can afford right now) are better than the cheapest Canon lenses. Second, the cheapest Nikon camera, the D50, has more features than the Rebel XT 350, the cheapest Canon. And it has better lowlight functionality, which is where I'll use a lot.

Course, anyone out there happening to read this who knows otherwise and/or wants to offer advice, please feel free. :) I have a couple weeks before buying, so hurry up.

The thing about the razr phone is too funny (well, I guess not that funny if it's your phone). Do you have some of your photos on Flickr? I would love to see your work. S.

Flikr? Nah. I am nowhere near that organized. I do have a few pics on, um... what site is that??? Um... oh, yeah... http://s38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/leertracy/ but I don't update very often. This is usually what I use when I want to post photos in a particular online forum. I'll have to start a flikr account. Then I'll have to take good photos... it'll never end.
