Best Digital Camera

I got a Nikon D50. It's an entry-level Digital SLR in the price range of around $650-700 if you buy the 18-55mm lens kit. It's one of the best camera you can buy for that price. (Except the D40, which was just released and is around $600.)
I recommend atleast looking at it, unless you want something more professional, less expensive, or less bulky. (I'm actually considering buying a more portable camera for myself, but not giving up my D50!) This is a generally camera for casual photographers who want great quality pictures.
Here are some reviews of it at Photography Review.com and Dpreview.com
I'm too lazy to dig up a bunch of stuff, but I posted some pictures in this thread that I took with that camera and the 18-55mm kit lens (which is fairly inexpensive, but not the best you can buy).
Sorry for all the love.
The few complaints that I have for it are that it doesn't photograph red very true (most cameras I've seen have a problem with this), the built-in flash can be quite strong on people indoors (but there are attachments or diffusers that you can buy), and there is no B&W mode (is that not less-than-difficult to do on the PC?).
The nearest alternative to this (atleast as of last September) is the Canon Digital Rebel XT, but it costs a bit more. There are other options from the Nikon line, like the D80 (around $1,000) or the D40 ($600), if you're interested.
