Sorry if this is slightly off topic. My first DSLR was a Nikon D50 and it is still my one and only DSLR - I have used it so many times, I can't remember. Until I retired about 2yrs ago, I was a photographer with a monthly magazine, and the D50 was the only camera that I used, and thus far (I'm probably pushing my luck now) it has never let me down - photographing car accidents, art galleries to the Royal family and most things between. I cannot praise it enough, and the only lens that I have ever used was and is the Tamron AF28-300mm F3.5-6.3. Unti it dies, I would'nt think of replacing it - so sad that it is now not still being made IMHO.
