Nikon D50

9-14-2005--3-17-2008
My favorite camera of all-time, one that I have owned off & on for some 2 years, it is my second-ever d-SLR and the model that marked my return to Nikon SLRs after a brief period of owning a Canon SLR, the 300D, which was my 1st ever d-SLR. Prior to that, I had owned Nikon all-in-ones and Nikon 35mm SLRs. I had always wanted a D70 when it came out but couldn't afford it, and was excited to hear of the introduction of this derivative of it that was more affordable yet plenty capable.

Bought it the first time in Sept 12th 2005 when I found an incredible deal on one. It showed up for sale with lens brand-new at Craigslist.Org for only $500. It normally sold for $800 at the time. It seemed too good to be true, but I checked it out & it was legitimate. I managed to upgrade to this at only a $100 "penalty" over the old Canon D-SLR gear.

The D50 was being sold in Phoenix and on Wed 9-14-2005 I met the owner halfway in Casa Grande to see it for myself & purchase it. I enjoyed shooting with this camera immensely. I loved this SLR, and owned it for 21 months only to reacquire it again 3 months later.

In June 2007, I sold some bits & pieces to try out the Nikon D40, the D50's successor, fully figuring on keeping both bodies and using the D40 specifically for "portability purposes" since it's smaller. I ended up using the D40 fully I liked it so much, and financial concerns existed at the time, so I sold the D50. I didn't regret it all that much at first, but ultimately did and when the opportunity arose picked up another one on 9-27-2007 (largely made possible due to a profit I made buying another camera, the Fuji S2 Pro, and selling it for 375 after paying only 200, nearly 2-1 profit). I ended up selling that body (Dec 2008) intending to upgrade to a D80 or D200, didn't, got a 3rd body, sold it for a 4th one in more mint-shape (still Dec 2008), then finally "settled down" when I sold it to upgrade to a low-priced D80.
