Recently I've been thinking about a "dedicated" digital - primarly natural light - portrait type system. Body's I'm most seriously considering at this point include D200, D80, D50, S3, S5 or possibly a 5D. Lens most likely 50mm f1.4 or 85mm f1.4, or possibly longer if a 5D.

Any thoughts &/ or opinions?

Thanks.

Best.

If money is no option then in this order my choice would be :

S5 Pro
D200
D80/ S3
D50

All I own is Nikon glass and a D50 - so I've excluded the Canons.

S5 Pro or 5D

Best range and colour quality.

I wouldn't rule out an SD14 either?

Anyone hear the 200 is being discounted? Heard it from a camera shop guy today when I was looking at cameras. He is a long time pro, says it had something to do with the Sony sensor not being just right?
