Hi All,

Glad to have these forums back, couldn't believe how much I did miss them, and I haven’t even purchased my Nikon yet!

Anyway, I've been saving to move from film to a DSLR, and I would like some opinions on which to buy (sorry, D200 is too much for me right now.)

If I get the D50, I would upgrade and get the 18-70mm lens. If I get the D70, it comes with that lens and with the rebate it's the same price as the D50 with the upgraded lens.

Now, I know most local retailers are out of D70's, but B&H still has them in stock so I do have a decision to make. I've read all about the differences, I guess my major concern is there really a major difference in the pics that are taken? I can't imagine the sensors are that different. Also, since I’m new to DSLR’s AND I want my wife to be able to use the camera, would the D50 be easier to learn and use, meaning since there’s only one command dial, etc., less options = better results?

Hope this made sense, any help/opinions is greatly appreciated.
