I've just bought a Nikon D50 with 18-55 & 70-300 fot £550. A fantastic camera and and fantastic value, especially when I compare it to the price I paid for my Canon T90 kit 20 yrs ago. I just hope I get the same performance and reliability for 20 yrs from my Nikon that I got with Canon.
It's not like me to swap brands when I've been more than happy with one particular brand but the reviews on here were especially usefull...........and accurate !
