You would recommend a discontinued camera to a person???

As long as the company is still there to support it.. you bet. KM bailing is the only reason I don't reccomend my KM5D to others... I would assume Nikon would still service and support the D50 and D70 just fine.. and there are NIB ones still to be had I think.

Also, the 400D doesn't have an inbody focus motor, does that make
it bad?

But you see Canon has never had AF lenses with a body motors so the budget buyer can easily choose to get a nice used Canon AF lense and it will work. There are now tons of nice Nikon lenses that are nearly useless to D40 users. But hey Nikon wants them to buy new lenses so all is fine.
