For wedding events, my experience is a FF camera is more useful. Why not consider the 5DM1? 2nd is about the price of the New 50D.

50mm F1.8 are prone to flare and AF is slow. 18-55 do not give you the colors that you wish to get most of the time.

This has been asked many times before. Please try to do a search and your own research first.

Tight budget? Used Canon 40D/400D or Nikon D60/D80/(D200?)
Careful about lens compatibility/buying used stuff though.

With that extra wad of cash saved on buying used old bodies, you can buy flashes/lenses and all the other pretty goodies!

why not a 30D instead since the 50D is not really anything new.

for weddings, an 18-200 IS works remarkably well. For portraits and group shots, the 50mm 1.8 will do.

For colors and whatever adjustments...take all in Raw the important shots and maybe a backup PnS for misc shots.

a friend once told me: No money, dun play camera... and that sunk in deep deep..

But in any case, TS, what isst that you need? Do you have any preferences for brands? Do you have any need for those features found in those 2 cameras? Have you done a search on them and their features, and see which goes with you better? Have you gone out to try holding them yet?

maybe in this manner, you might be able to decide for your ownself more easily...
