Re: Switching to Nikon! D70 or D50?

I'm assuming you already have compactflash media? I switched from rebel xt to the d70s and since I already had several compactflash cards the switch to it was about the same price if I would have gone with the d50 and bought more media for it. That made it a no brainer and no thinking I shoulda gone with the d70s later on.

Some things the d70s has that the d50 doesn't:

Bracket button
Wireless flash
Viewfinder grid
Control Panel lamp
Monitor cover
Lock switch
DOF preview button
WB fine tuning

1/8000 max shutter speed to d50 1/4000

1/3 EV steps (ISO 200 - 1600) to 1 EV steps d50

3.0 fps to d50 2.5 fps

2 command dials to d50 1

25 custom functions to d50 20

Flash coverage 20mm to 18mm
