After talking about it for so long I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself a Nikon D50. I went for the kit lens (18-55mm f3.5/5.6) because for the money and my budget I figured it would be a good way to go. I will pick up something a bit longer in the near future, but for now I'm enjoying the kit. Film is great and I do enjoy the darkroom process, but being able to take a few hundred shots, having it not cost you anything and seeing the results right away are some serious advantages.
Anybody else have a dslr (aside from John and his studio babes)? What lenses do you have and what types of photography do you do? I mostly do just inanimate objects for now, but soon hope to do more sports (skateboarding and snowboarding). Back when I was in school we got to work in the studio which was really fun, so I'd like to get back into that also.
I have a few shots up on Flickr but nothing really crazy yet.
I think maybe it's time to sell off the 35mm minolta and buy another lens for the d50 :D
