I see a lot of enticing screw lenses and I want the smallest camera to drive them. My D40 looks nice and small compared to my D7000 for some occasions where I do not want to intimidate family members.

Will the D50 fly as a smallish D40 type presence? Or is it just too much like the D90?

The D50 was a brilliant camera in its day, but I'd not buy one now.

Take a look at this site. I've set it up to compare size of D40 to D90, but you can chance the comparison to a whole load of different cameras. Dial up an OM-D against a D4!,179

Here you go, I've done it for you, can't resist seeing those two side by side once more:,289
