Well with money saved I am now ready to buy a 2nd body to replace my D50. The lenses I use mainly are (1) 80-400VR older ver and (2) Nikkor 50mm AF f/1.8D Is the jump from a 5MP camera to a 24MP to great with the lenses I have in regards to obtaining good image quality. Is the 16 MP a better step forward. Assuming that with my lenses excellent technique is needed to get good results or am I just ove thinking it. Thanks for any input on this, appreciate it.
