trust me I do, but you must realize Nikon is phasing out internal
focusing motors, save maybe the next generation or two of pro

already invested in older 35mm glass years ago.

This is the key point that kept me from getting a D-50. I wanted the 50 mm and/or 85 mm prime and either the Sigma or Tamron lens instead of the kit lens. Once Nikon shook everything up with the D40/x, I'm back on the sidelines watching to see what Nikon (and everyone else) is going to do.
