Nikon Readies Cheaper Digital SLR to Rival Canon

Article: Nikon Readies Cheaper Digital SLR to Rival Canon

Hehe... I think this is a smart move on Nikon's part... to get the beginner photographers hooked on Nikon's with the D50, a cheaper DSLR... from there, it's only natural that they stick with Nikon.

Expect the the D50 to have a 6.1-megapixel sensor, a silver case, and use SD cards for storage. Now all we need is a price (expect it well under a grand).
