For almost a year now I’ve been running around with a Nikon D50 and have really enjoyed my results. However, I knew when I got it that I was getting the best camera for my price range and I would upgrade when I had the money. Well, the company I work for is selling our old Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F717 and will be buying my D50, with the proceeds (plus whatever my tax refund will be) going towards my purchase of a new D200 with an MB-D200 multi-function vertical grip and remote shutter release. I’ll still have use of the D50 as my backup body and for any work-related photography that won’t require the use of the D200 – like taking pictures of eBay auction items.
My next big photo purchase will definitely be a good carbon fiber tripod and ball head as well as a Really Right Stuff L-bracket. In time…
