Overall a great camera - just make sure you read the manual and some online guides.
I have to say the D50 is a great camera; I've already taken hundreds of photographs. The controls are easy to use and the battery life is excellent. My old 35mm SLR cameras are going into retirement. The D50 is a quality well built well-designed camera and the 18-55mm lens is excellent I've also bought the Nikon 28-200mm AF ED G lens and again the quality is excellent.
This camera is good for the beginner and even those like myself that have been using 35mm SLR cameras for years. Don't be put off with the fact the camera is made of plastic and not metal like the traditional 35mm SLR cameras, the build quality is very good and it's easy to hold and well balanced.
Overall I've yet to find fault with the D50. I strongly recommend it.
So I suppose I should explain why I've given it 5 stars...
Well in the months following my purchase I've mostly got to grips with the key controls that make the difference between a simple point-and-shoot snap, and a photo that shows the right depth of field, exposure, contrast, etc.
Shooting in manual mode gets easier with practice and the lack of an aperture ring on the kit lens is no longer an issue for me (the plastic lens, dispite being the whipping boy on many discussion forums, is a really impressive piece of kit: very sharp, fast focussing, and very light-weight - something that many people forget until they take a heavy lens on a long hike).
So to summarise, after nearly 12 months of owning a D50 I have no regrets, but I would offer the following tips:
1. If you're not keen on photography and just want a good camera to take sharp photos on the D50 will probably be wasted on you.
2. If your SLR skills are rusty (or are based on older, manual focus, SLRs) don't expect to find the first few weeks/months easy!
3. Don't believe what everyone tells says about the 18-55 kit lens. Most people who slate it's performance on internet forums are the sort of people who spend hours mulling over photos of test-cards to see which lens is the sharpest or distorts the least at a fixed distance and aperture (all very well if you only intend to photograph test cards).
4. Condiser buying a book along with the camera if you've not used an SLR for a while as the manual is very technical rather than practical (a few weeks after getting the D50 I bought "Understanding Exposure" which I found invaluable in understanding how to get the most out of "manual" mode).
I soon learnt to use the camera and the photos are really great and the advantage is that you can see them practically straight away on your PC. You also stop paying for films and you can throw poor pictures away without feeling you are chucking your money out of the window.
The lens 18-55mm is fine. I mainly use the camera on "aperture mode" as I like to control the depth of field. At time I have used the other modes and the results are each time very good.
The camera is light, fits well in the hand and is easy to use. A great buy.
