Any Nikon DSLR will accept a Nikon AF-D 70-210 lens. I'm not sure about whether the Sigma you have will work with the D50; ask on the D50 forum.

But in terms of choosing camera systems, if you don't do much shooting you probably can't go wrong with any of the major players. Try to get to a store where you can handle any you are interested in, but don't expect them to be set up for optimum performance (or even have a functional battery!).

Look at the specs, but also look at operating issues. What control setup seems easiest and most logical to you? Which camera are you most likely to actually pick up and use? These are imponderables that others cannot advise you on.
