    Make sure factor in a decent tripod.. else how are u gonna be in the company photo??

    I think $2k budget should about cover the D50 + kit lens + SB600 + tripod + batteries + charger + memory card + memory card reader + camera bag + electrical dry box + uv filter... anything else?

    I think you should try to wake some sense into your boss, let him know that just having a DSLR won't mean having better images. In fact, initially w/o tweaking chances are it's output is lousier than a pns. Let him know you won't be responsible (actually quite hard lah, looks like the finger's locked onto you) if the images aren't up to standards and they'll have to pay even more to get someone to do it later.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    Already got CS2 in the office. But the lucky user is not me .. is a gal.

    I use Google Picasa2 (free) to do simple edit.

    and don't embarrass yourself and the company with the haft past six group photos, unless the company don't wish to publish the photos.

    any more advise on the camera ?

    if he says yours can't make it..then ask him which one can? bosses always give problems and says can be done one..but when u ask them for solution, they can't even provide one..

    yes, buy a D2Xs, 17~35f2.8, 28~70f2.8, SB800, and quantum turbo battery pack, best set up for event shooting, sure can deliver pro quality, but only subject to the photographer.

    ahnah - if you boss laughed at the entry level dslrs, then you can consider putting up recommendations for the Canon 30D or the Nikon D200.

    lense range would be your next issue, i would go for the 17-55f2.8 for general event shooting, but if your purpose if large group shots, you might want to consider lenses which deal with the distortion a little better, e.g. the Canon 16-35f2.8 and the Nikon 17-35f2.8
