    Same... sell at $950, top up for another camera, the lens and accessory also one day will outweight the other camera, so what's your point?

    Since, you now own the D50, go out and shoot with your kit-lens and try
    the different functions.
    The more you shoot and hold the camera, the more you will like it as you begin
    to master the control. But if after 1 month of shooting and you still prefer a Canon 350D.
    It is still not too late to switch, by selling of your D50.
    As usual, I want to say, both are capable and good. Both have their plus and minus.

    Just like any weapons, all kill. But how good really depends on the shooter.

    Based on ergonomics definitely the D50 wins, which I felt immediately comparing both. You're going to hold the camera so it must feel comfortable.
    If you buy camera for picture quality, you can't go wrong with 350D.

    I don't think I will sell the D50 without giving it a chance.... moreover, it's a gift from my wife...

    It's not like we are very well to do, but she took the effort and $$$ to support me in this area, it is only right I appreciate it by accepting it, use and begin to learn to take good pictures with it....

    I like photography, but I love my wife more..... if I really need to change it.... I will explain to her and get her understanding first....

    You didn't read through the thread right? Just post after reading post one?

    guess you are totally right! since you have the system, why not test it and compare the final result in imaging and handling with the rest of the brands to make a comparison.

    Don't know about you, but I buy camera to take quality pictures, not for "picture quality".

    And welcome to the world of DSLR photography.

    That's a very reasonable attitude. Apart from ethics/relationship issues, let me add that:

    The better camera always seems to be the one that one doesn't have (i.e. the grass is always greener on the other side). However, the camera you actually have gets you infinitely more good pictures than the one you can only admire in the window of a shop. If you don't see a killer argument for/against a certain model, why not simply accept the choice of fate (resp. your wife)?
