Merry Christmas!

I see that you are already using a Canon system with Canon lenses and a flash. So I would think it's better to stick with getting a 350D and using that as a second body.

Ah...it was just a wish list. Well, pardon me. 2am in the morning, plus a bit of alcohol. Maybe I wasn't sober.

You have to make your own decision ... cant be asking around and make your choice rite ??

Let's say if some1 give you the wrong info and you act on it .. will you blame him after the event when something goes wrong ... ????

Follow what your heart tells you ... to BUY BUY BUY lar .... :)

Wait and not get any shots, buy and you can start shooting. $950 for D50 seems not bad a deal.

Based on quality of pics I think the 350D is slightly better with sharper pics and more megapixels, but are you going to print very large photos it shows the difference?

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.

The rest of the features have pluses and minuses here and there, many articles have been written, just do a search.

Price wise since you're already going to spend on a DSLR so it's 'small' difference.

Bottom line, try both and see which one you'll feel 'as one'. Hope you decide soon and enjoy.

Well you can always sell it at $950 and you have the choice again. Hey dun let yourselve get ruled by circumstances and you will always be unhappy since its not your choice. Getting it yourselve and being given is not the same since you will not appreciate it as much. Whats more you need to get all the lens and accessory which one day will outweigh this $950.
