Used A2 or New Nikon D50?

Having a very good 7hi with DPS 9000 battery pack (don't leave home without it!) which I intend to keep, and having sold an older digicam, I am now considering which of the two would be better for me. While the Nikon D50 is a sweet camera, the horror stories I have read about regarding dirty and cleaning sensors (and ruined camera bodies) has me seriously thinking about a used A2. The view through the Nikon is spectacular although I have not had the opportunity to look through the EVF of a A2 as I understand is much improved over the 7hi viewfinder which leaves something to be desired. Dollar wise about the same. Nikon with a shorter lens 27mm to 82mm vs. 28 to 200mm on A2, plus lcd swivel and such. Interested in your opinions..Thanks
