I think the sale is over already but I got my D50 w/lens from CompUSA for $750...it had a $50 instant rebate. I know that Costco has the camera for $769 but I'm not sure if it includes the lens or not. Try doing a Froogle search for "Nikon D50" and see what you come up with.

thanks for the replys. i should have been clearer in my post. i'm looking for a D50 body only and the 18-70mm kit lens. i think i can get a d50 body for a fair price here in las vegas nv. but everyone here wants $400.00 + tax for the 18-70 lens. anyone know where this lens can be had new for a fair price? or is $400.00 a good price ? i compared the 18-55 lens with the 18-70 lens in the store and the choice was simple. thanks for any leads on a good website. i'm so happy this place is back!

I was shooting with my Dad's 18-70 last night, and I noticed alot of vignetting! I was going to pick this lens up aswell, but I'm not too sure about it now....
