Hi all. I was set to buy a D50 body (not a kit), but my local camera shop didn't have any D50s at all. One salesperson told me me they would be out of stock for an unknown amount of time and that they were possibly discontinued, though she was unsure about this and I hadn't heard anything about it. The in-house Nikon Guy said something along the lines of, "officially, it's not discontinued, but practicality-wise..." and he didn't say anything after that. I was a little surprised about this since I've heard nothing but good things about the D50 (and it's not too old). He was really busy with some other customers, so I didn't get a chance to talk to him. I then took my search online... B&H is out of the body-only setup, so Penn Camera looked promising and I placed the order Thursday night. Yesterday I got an e-mail telling me the D50 would be out of stock for 6-8 weeks. Is all of this a coincidence, or does this have anything to do with the upcoming Photokina show? I was thinking about trying another local shop, but should I "take a hint" about why several shops are stocking possibly limited supplies of the D50? I need photokinarumors.com! I know the D50 is a little older now, but I really don't want to plonk down the cash for a D80 and I don't want anything lesser than a D50 if such a product is announced soon. Now I don't know if I should wait for 9/26 or continue my search or get on a waiting list.
