No. D50 was NOT replaced by D70.

D70 released - Jan 2004. D50 released - April 2005.

Thank you for correcting. I believe it was D70s that replaced the D70. Somehow, I remember the D50 suddenly going out of style in a very short time.

Afaics, the D70s and D50 were announced the same day, April 20, 2005. While the D70s was a minor evolutionary upgrade of the D70 (larger screen, different built-in flash, new firmware), the D50 was a whole new camera, slightly de-spec'd vs. the D70(s), and definitely with a reworked sensor, while the D70s got the same sensor as the D70. The noise characteristics of the D70s and D50 are different; I can tell because I owned both. The D50 is noticeably better in the noise department, not only in JPEG but also in RAW.
Pics, or it didn’t happen!
