I would get a Nikon D50 before I got a Nikon D40.

Its funny that the D50 was mentioned, because I just got done chatting with a man who is selling his Nikon D50.

He says that it is in mint condition. I seen a few pics of it and it looks great. It has 1107 clicks. And he is asking $320 for it. A good deal or no?

He lives 2 hours away, so I figured I'd ask you guys about this first. I didnt know there was a D50 either. What is the difference between the D40 and D50? Is the D50 as easy to use and figure out as the D40? Pros and cons?

Thanks a ton.

Good luck on your camera hunt! If I hear/see of any good deals on D40s I'll let you know.

And pllllllleeeeassseee post some updated pictures of the girls and Truffles ASAP. I'm having Truffles withdrawals

Also, you may want to look into getting a Nikon D50 (you can probably find one for around $200).
Dont worry. I cant wait to snap some awesome shots of Truffles once I get a DSLR camera! I just took the most adorable pics of Lily yesterday, and of course her big sis too.

I've never used a D50 (or D40 for that matter LOL) but I would say they are both easy to use since you've had a D40 before. . .and they are -Nikon cams- all generally the same.

Here, check out this: Nikon D40 Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review

And $320 doesn't sound that off to me. Does it come with a lens?

That sounds like a really nice deal to me. I payed $400 for my D40x (10.2mp) with the same lens.

Ritz camera had a great deal on my camera. Like, crazy good. More stuff than you need, and out of your price range but... for $610 I got a 55-200 lens, the kit lens, camera body, bag, hood, and loooots of stuff.

Not sure if they have specific deals or what but, good luck!
