Greetings Nikonians and thanks in advance for any advice. By intor i am a former SLR film (Pentax K-1000) user who can't stand point and shoot cameras. I waited for digital SLR's to get to the point they were affordable and now want to buy the D-50. Having read some reviews on the "kit" lens (ie 18-55), I am wondering do I buy the body alone then purchase another lens or 2 lenses other than the kit. My general uses are sports, taking pictures of my sone playing basketball, baseball and football, taking pictures of my children and grandchildren, and general vacation scenery. I know that is pretty vague and general but any advice would be appreciated. Any advice on what accessories I shoule start out with such as memory (is 1GB really what is needed or can I get by with 256 if I save and download frequently?) UV lens filter I gather is needed...
