Yes, it’s an old thread but perhaps Marcus will tell us what he eventually replaced his D50 with.
The D50 is quite cheap on the second hand market here in the UK, but there are other options.
Wonder what your budget is?
I have two DX cameras, D3300 & D3200 which I use regularly. I’m trying to stop myself buying a D7200, but the price is still high for these – perhaps £350 - £400 from a dealer with warranty.
Wonder if you can find someone local to you to borrow another AF-s lens to quantify the problem you have with D50 / lens?
As I said earlier in the thread, I replaced my D50 with a D90. Still lots around, not incredibly expensive, and retains compatibility with the earlier AF lenses.
I eventually changed up to a D7000 because they still support the even older AI lenses, and I own a couple and like not having to mess around with guesstimating every shot, but that's not something most people need.
I'm currently thinking about going full-frame but there's no urgency about it - I'll probably go for a D610 if I eventually take the plunge. Just not the D600, judging by its reputation!
