Probably like most of you, I chose and bought the D50 because the reviews said the D50 was the best entry level DSLR money could buy. I have wanted a DSLR for years and when our ole reliable point-and-shoot digital started having problems I knew this was the time to get one. So I researched and pretty much found that for the money (and even a few hundred more) there was not a better camera to be had. I struggled for weeks to decide the best combo to get without spending a ton. So I got the D50 with the kit lens and the 70-300mm G lens. I figured that would last me at least a year before I was wanting for anything else.

Oh my, how wrong I was…

Just a mere 5 weeks and 3000 photos later I am looking at other lens prices daily on the internet. I have already purchased the Nikon SB-600 flash knowing I needed a little extra power in that department. Then, of course, I had to get some nice Hoya filters for each of my lenses. And now I am seriously looking at that damned 18-200VR lens. She is calling to me like a Siren in Greek mythology. I say to myself, “No! You don’t need it! That thing was more then your whole camera!” But then another part of me says “Yeah, but you can be a one lens man! Think of the low light picture quality! And aren’t you going to Germany in a few weeks with your son? Well, this will make things so much better for picture taking!!!” This "budget" camera is costing me a fortune.
