so, this is how it goes:
shortly after i purchased a nikon d50, i decided that i liked it.
shortly thereafter, i decided that i did not.
it's sad that i have to blow several hundred dollars before i make a decision as such, but logic and my head are not synonymous. if we were to make a venn diagram of my own logical process and real logical thinking, they would not overlap. ever.
so, sadly, mr d50 has to go. i have to send him on to a good home so that i can instead buy a canon camera, because i simply cannot live another minute without iso100 or a lightup status lcd or a depth-of-field preview.
goodbye, mr. d50. you will be missed.
postscript: originally, i posted this as a requisition/shameless self-promotional tool for an ebay sale i would be making, but the realization that this violated deviantart's policy dawned on me very quickly. i apologize for this brief lapse of rational thinking.
