Just got my hands on the new D50 in and It's great It has a really nice feel to it. Good weight, and a real handfull. The kit lens is one step above a paper towel roll covered in plastic wrap. I think it will sell better than the D70s just based on feel. Super fast and large buffer. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is SD card, not CF. Other than that, keep your eyes open for it and fondle one soon.
