3 Easy Questions about D50 purchase
Dec 15, 2005

Hi there,

I'm looking to purchase the following in the next day or two:

D50
18-70
SB-600

My 3 questions:

1) I'm a big fan of a filter to protect the lens. I know some people don't like it but it's saved my bacon a few times. Anyways, I'm a big fan of the Nikon filters (L37C) but Nikon doesn't make one in 67mm. Any recommendations to other brands that are similar quality?

2) Will Photoshop Elements 4 handle D50 Raw images (.nef's)? I'm waiting to spring for Capture until a 5.x release (supposedly early next year)

3) Do I absolutely need a high speed card? I'm looking at a Kingson Pro model but it doesn't appear to be as high speed as the SanDisk Ultra or Lexar Platinum. It is, however, substantially cheaper.

Thanks for any guidance.
