They're great. I have owned my D-50 since the day before Thanksgiving, and I have been giving thanks since that time. It has great response to catching birds in flight and the colors are terrific. For a beginner DSLR it goes far beyond just beginning.

My sentiments exactly. I am still unsure why they call it a beginner/novice camera, it takes the same optics as all the other Nikon AF range and it has a higher pixel count than some. I keep going on about this but, I can't believe how good the kit lens is, what a bargain.
