Greetings all. Let me start with the fact that my experience with a camera is based mostly on aim and shoot. My wife has a fairly nice SLR and would like to get a Digital SLR. From what I can tell the D50 is a pretty good starting point.

That being said I have looked all over the net to find what and were to buy this for my wife for Christmas.

My issue is 2 fold. I want to get her pretty much what she would need to at lease determine if she likes the digital. I also would like to stay at a bout 1000 dollars us after any rebates etc. After digging around a bit I think I found what I am looking for but would like to get some input from people who know a bit more then me.

After doing some reading I found the website http://www.buydig.com and I think they have pretty good prices. They also have a package that consists of

Nikon D50 Digital SLR Camera w/ 18-55mm and 55-200mm AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lenses
Digital Concepts 52mm Multicoated UV Protective Filter (you must have this basic clear filter!)
Dane 1 GB SECURE DIGITAL {SD} MEMORY ( A Necessity)
GGI SD USB2.0 Hi-Speed Card Reader
Sakar 1300mAh EN-EL3 Lithium Battery for Nikon D50 / D70 / D100 (BP100CL )
Digpro ALL-PURPOSE DELUXE GADGET BAG - DP6000
Sakar 3pc. Lens Cleaning Kit
Epson Picturemate Express Personal Photo Lab
GGI USB 2.0 HI-Speed USB to Printer Cable (480Mbps) 10 Ft.
Epson Nikon/Epson Camera + Printer $150 mail-in Rebate DOWNLOAD AND SAVE!
Masterworks DVD JumpStart Guide to the Nikon D50

That is a cut and paste of buydig's web site.

I am curious if the price of about $1,152.99 with a $150 mail in is a good one as well as if this would be the correct stuff to buy.

I have to admit that I have no idea what I am doing other then what I have read on a handful of magazines and web sites. Feel free to tell me if I am all wrong and if my budget is too small or if this would be a nice Xmas gift for my lovely wife.

Thanks in advance for you input.
