Well I went out and bought a Nikon D50. And after buying it I ahve taken about 250 shots. Everything seemed to be fine, but I still don't think the quality compares to the Canon 350D. Not in the layout of the picture, but in the quality of image. I got sucked into the D50 by the sales dude who uses... you guessed it a Nikon. The problem I am having is this: I think i Would be happier with the Canon 350D, but it is just to darned small for my stupid fat hands, and the fact that I am not sure if they would take the memory card back, the rest I know they would but the card was like 130$(canadian). Oh and there is the fact that the camera is like 130 some ought dollors more, which would bring my total to like 1260$!!! and that is alot of cash. I am at a loss, what do you all think?
