    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.

    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!
