    The 50mm prime is a terrific workhorse and very cheap for the optical quality; you've made a good choice there. A couple of our lenses (the 28-200 and 28-105) were bought back when we weren't really sure what we were doing; they're handy to bolt on and carry around all day but a 12mp camera just makes mincemeat of them. That was a real shock, actually: my wife was so excited when she got her D300 but the first few pictures we took looked worse than with the D70! It was only when we tried the 50mm and then the Tamron macro we realised the camera was out-resolving the consumer zooms.

    Example from Tamron + D300

    Download the original (6mb) and view at 100%.

    Bwahahaha UPGRADE! Yes!

    Nikon D70s with 18-70mm.

    Sold the D40.

    Gonna sell the 18-55, and possibly the 18-70 and save up for a Tamron 17-50. Thats in the future though. Love the D70s btw. Overall tons more awesome than the D40.

    Pentax *istDS. And a lot of old lenses, including a really great 55mm 1.4 Super Takumar. (yep. Screwmount)

    When I use film, Nikon F, Nikon EL2, Voightlander Prominent, Contax II, or Leica IIIc.

    And sometimes, a Voigtlander Perkeo. How about a pocketable medium format camera that takes great pictures?

    Nope. Dumb lenses, smart photographers. That's how it used to be. The old rangefinders made you do everything. I've been sort of dumbed down by the auto everything on the Pentax. (I do have autofocus lenses; I just find that the old ones often work better for a lot of applications.
