Playing with Nikon's D50

I picked up a Nikon D50 at our local Wal-Mart (still amazes me to see DSLRs, even entry-level ones, in Wal-Mart of all places) and I not think that the fit and feel of it are SO much better than the Rebel and Rebel XT.

I'm a longtime user of Canon digital cameras and wouldn't trade them for anything, but my first SLRs were Nikon (my college paper stocked them) and I'd forgotten how solid and heavy they are.

I know people dig the Canons' light weight - and I know there's more to a camera than just how it FEELS - but you might want to get your hands on one of Nikon's cameras just to see what people are talking about when they say that Canon's amateur and enthusiast cameras feel like toys.

I'd always disagreed with those comments until this weekend.
