    So, my D50 is overexposing everything whenever it's not in Auto or Manual mode.

    Here's a picture in Auto mode:

    And the same thing in Aperture Priority (at F11):

    Any ideas what could be wrong? I've tried resetting it, to no avail.

    what about the exsposure adjustment on the d50 press it and see is a plus sign and a number pops up. The button has a plus sign and a neg. sign on it. Just a quick thought.

    Not that this would make a diffrence(because I don't think its lens issue) but have you tried another lens to see if you get the same result?

    Yeah it sounds like your exposure compensation is up way too high.

    EC would be on in these modes too, try another lens, one of mine(lens) did similar once it was to do with the auto indexing switch on the lens. H

    Looks like your exposure compensation is on and set to overexpose the image. Check your manual for exposure compensation and return the camera to neutral metering. Also flash appears to be have been used in the second shot as well
