I have a D40x that my son and his wife are now using - and they are liking it. It was relatively painless to get them acclimated to using it, and would make a good starter for your son, I think.

However, since you have a D50 and lenses that won't work with the D40 that you can loan him; I would go with the D50. You are already familiar with the D50, and can help him with advice more readily than with a D40.

Both are good cameras, in my opinion.
